We have just added 5 adorable ducklings to our brood. They are growing quickly with no issues except for one of the pekins had leg problems, we treated that and she is well on her way to recovery! My issue is that we currently have them in the laundry room in a very large dog cage, well needless to say at three weeks old, they are very quickly out growing that cage. And unfortunately they stink to high heavens despite that we clean them twice a day. I have taken away thier heat lamp the past few days and they seem to be doing fine, my question can I put them out in the coop?? They would be in a totally enclosed brooder we have that is 4 times the size of the dogs cage, it has a heat lamp and they will have access to the out side on warmer days. Thier encloseure is due to be finished in the next few weekends. Our temps here in NJ have been in the low 40's at night but the temps in the coops are at about 60 degrees with out the heat lamp so I assume it would be a bit warmer when we put them on. I have two swedish and three pekings very healthy and active. I would like to hear a few opinions... I love these little guys and want to do the best for them!
