When can ducklings go outside?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My ducklings turned 2 weeks old this past Monday and I was hoping to put them outside at least during the day this weekend. This weekend is supossed to be 83 degrees. They have used a mama heating pad since they were 2 days old. If I move them outside with it being over 80 degrees should I put the heating pad outside in their duck house? I have noticed them sitting on top of the heating pad lately more than they ever have before.

Thanks!

If it's over 80 degrees and its just during the day, they *should* be ok... watch them for a bit and make sure they're doing fine... if you have water they can get into though, I would put the MHP out with them in case they get chilled... easy for them to do at that age...
