Ya' gotta understand.. We had snow for Easter. I'm certainly not complaining.. I'm just saying, that while other folks brag about "My ducks are outside at 2 weeks old.." In my area (we have our own weather here in Andover NH) we have to take things just a little bit slower sometimes. My babies have had to make due with the bath tub in the guest bathroom, the 5x15 hallway and other atrocities So today, I put up some temp. fencing / poultry wire. Just enough for a 12'x12' area to give them some excersize, sun and such. Hopefully within the next week or two, I'll have their pond area and coop done.. Anyway... just like me.. You couldn't get them to leave the "pool" or the "bar."
