When we ordered our chicks this year my husband just added a couple ducks to the order because he thought they would be fun. We didn't know anything about them. Well now they're living in the brooder with our chicks. Everyone seems to be getting along fine. But by now the ducks (2 weeks old) are about 4 times the size of the chicks even though they're the same age.
They also seem to be too hot. They pant quite a bit. I moved the heat lamp to one side of the brooder so they can get away from it if they way, but they don't. They just lay right underneath it and pant.
So I guess I was wondering when can they go outside? I could try to set up a separate brooder for them on the porch. Their coop is still under construction. The temps right now are 70s during the day, 40s at night. Maybe I should just move them during the day.
Thank you for the help!
