When the babies no longer need heat at night, I let them out of their wire cage and the gander gathers them into his "flock".  One year I hatched out 15 runner ducks and it was so funny to watch 3 geese proudly parading around their duck babies.  Just be careful of any water sources that could drown your young ones.

I bet that was sweet.
