    So today was a GORGEOUS day in Wisconsin!!!!!!! FINALLY!!! DH put all 14 4week olds outside today in our run. Along with our 2 3 week old Rouen ducklings. Needed to get them outside and get introduced to the others that freerange. They loved it!!! So we have finally figured out the new babies living arrangements til they're ready to be out completly with the older ones. Really think they'll be okay, but kinda quiet in the house now.

    No doubt!! Get worried about them being outside for the night. Put a heatlamp in for them and have them in a cow water tank inside the run with a tarp on one side and some kind of cover that DH put on the top so they can't get wet. Makes me nervous!!![​IMG]
