Bringing ducks inside occasionally

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am thinking about bringing my three ducks inside occasionally for short periods. I'm worried that it might mess with their acclimation to the outside temperature. It's been in the 20s here during the day. I don't want them to be all warm in my 68 degree house and then go out and be cold. Anyone bring their ducks in for short periods during the winter? Any negative side effects?

My drake Opie comes in to visit he usually only stays about 10mins just long enough to get his small treat of dog food. I don't think it would hurt for short visits.
