At what age can I stop blow drying my ducklings after their baths. I have 2 that are 5 weeks old and 1 that is 4 weeks old.

They have some feathers just not all of them. I live in northern michigan. It was 80 yesterday and snowed today. So they still only go out when it's 70 or warmer.

I started the blow drying when I first got them. 2 were a week old and 1 was only 1 day old. I know that young they can't self regulate their temperature. I'm not even sure when they are able to self regulate their temperature.

I won't let them in the water until they have their feathers. I will give them about an inch of water to dabble in. They will sit in it. Only when it's sunny and warm. I never dry them unless my daughter is "dabbling" with them and they get all wet. Here are some photos:
