Can't seem to get any tech support. Can't seem to reset it. Alarm was very annoying while trying to figure out why it won't climb to set temps.

But would want them inside sometimes but would have to get diappers for them inside. Please help me make a desision they would never be alone . I just need help deciding I really want them but need to know everythingpost #9604 of 104374/17/16 at 11:33pmpost #9605 of 104374/18/16 at 3:17ampost #9606 of 104374/18/16 at 3:21amQuote:Post pic?
He may be a mix breed. If he has a little on his back it's probably a mix. If there is black like this
It's a magpie ducklingpost #9607 of 104374/18/16 at 6:02amI have 5 pekins, 2 mixes and a rouen. My 5 and 3 year old LOVE them! We bring them inside or to school pickup every once in a while. If you'd like to message me you're more than welcomepost #9608 of 104374/18/16 at 12:48pmImportant question. I have 4 ducklings they will be 4 weeks on the 21st. 2 are Cayuga and 2 are supposed to be Pekins but they are tan so I'm thinking maybe buffs. But anyway. We live in Washington (state) night temps for the rest of the week will be 35-48 degrees. Can I house them outside in their pen overnight? It is enclosed. It's actually a large chicken coop. Would they need a heat lamp or would they be fine without. And can they go without food and water overnight at this age (they have access to food and water all day everyday right now). They are getting adult feathers in and they have their fluffy down in also.

I would not withhold water and food at this age, try something like this to control splash
At 4 weeks, Storey's Guide recommends they be no cooler than near 70F. Can you safely keep them near that temperature, no drafts?post #9610 of 104374/18/16 at 2:33pm
