I have 7 ducklings. I JUST put them outside two days ago. Unfortunately, the weather has not been in my favor, and it's been raining like crazy. Every time it rains, the ducklings...just walk around in the rain and they just "yap" or cry, I'm not really sure. I go out there and put them inside of their house. They seem happy once they're in the house, but they don't seem to want to use it unless I literally put them inside of it. It also takes a bit for them to come outside, but that's another story.
They're NOT fully feathered, but the temperatures have been good except for the awful rain. Basically, my question is the title. Will they actually use their house on their own if they get too cold/wet?? It sucks having to put them in their house and lock them in at 3pm because it starts raining. AND THEN it stops literally less than 5 minutes after I put them in
