Way too many things carry ducklings off.
Mine get supervised free range time until they are adult sized. Until then, they are confined to the deck, brooder in the yard or a fenced in area with covered top since we have some hawks that frequent the airspace over the house.

I'd say about 16 wks. How fast they feather in depends on feed, temperatures, etc.

ETA: you will just know-- they'll look like adults! :)
