Baby Wave (mallard) learned to swim easily from her Mum Flo (mallard) who loves the pond.
Arabella (Muzzie), who hatched six mallard bubs today, doesn't like the water.
How will her bubs learn to swim?
Will they work out to get in the water if Mum doesn't go in?
Is there anything I can do to encourage them to like the water?

Can you herd them into the water? Just watch them in case they get stuck. You can place them in the water as well.
