We moved our 5 week old ducklings outside last weekend, They have a secure run and a heated coop and have been doing great. Previously we had the coop in the garage with a wire run for them and they were putting themselves to bed when it got dark since moving outside we have to herd them into their coop each evening.
Today we are expecting rain and maybe a thunderstorm in the afternoon so it will be interesting to see if they will go inside or sit it out. Yesterday was nearly 80F and I was showering them with the hose and they loved it goofballs!!! I'm hoping they will know the difference between a soft shower from a hose and a heavy downpour.
Still no names ... they are collectively known as The Crazy Gang.
