    Hey all, I recently rescued three 6 week old duckling. One pekin two khaki. Can they go outside now? It's getting high 70's and low into the 40s at night but they are escaping the brooder!

    Are they fully feathered yet? Can you make a larger brooder for them? What about an outdoor brooder in an enclosed space?

    They aren't fully feathered. I can out them in a outdoor space but I cannot run a heat lamp to it but I can still being them inside at night.
