Are 6 week old Ducklings ok to live outside?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all!

I am writing this on behalf of my mother, she wants to know if we can kick our 6 week ducklings outside? She says that it smells like a barn in the garage and that they are disgusting, I am the one that cleans up after them, LOL. We live on the West Coast, the low for this weeks temps at night are 49. We have 16 hens, one rooster, and three drakes that have never seen a female duck before. Should I let them outside yet?  TIA

I love books including but not limited to... the Bible, Lord of the Rings, Hobbit, Wings of Fire. 

I have a mini farm with around 50 chickens, 10 ducks, 2 Great Danes, and 3 farm cats, and five kittens born on June 10!

at 6 weeks it shouldn't be a problem putting them outside.
