That's me. They usually stay in the house 10 days. Just to be sure they are all thriving. They stay in the back bathroom. Chicks are not bad. But golly, the ducklings. They really smell in the small room no matter how many times a day they are cleaned. But not knowing how long I would be gone, I moved them on outside. Mind you this was 2 in the morning. I just amazes me that I went to check on them the next afternoon and they were great.
Hubs is just ALITTLE more important. And at times I'd take my critters over him.
I keep my ducks in the house until they are 3 weeks old, OMG, the SMELL is over whelming. AHHHHHHH
