I am more than ready for them to be outside, but it looks like winter is just going to hang around forever this year! Oh well, good thing thy're so cute!

Getting them a little closer to the out of doors is a good step, Spring has to come soon right? lol

@hamz  I think you should read this thread from start to finish and use this info to treat your ducklings, Main thing to watch for is infection with burns.  If you can get them to a vet that would  be best  if not then make sure to keep them as clean as possible I would use clean older towels till the blisters open and heal  use something like warm water Epsom salt soaks just their feet and don't let them drink the water ES is also used as a laxative. Then put some kind of spray like Veterycin spray for wounds and infections or a cream specifically for burns with out pain relief poultry can have serious reaction to pain medication.

How do they seem are they in serious trouble alot of pain? I think locking them away from very young children would be wise after what has happened.

The Epsom salt is something I would try.
