Can a duck drown?
Baby ducks will drown. They can only swimtil they get tired of paddling and then they sink if theycan't get out of the water until they get their bigduck feathers. I am so sorry for your loss. Maybe youcan make them a little ramp so they can come and goin and out of the water with ease.
