I purchased two pekin duckings a few weeks ago when they were between 1-2 weeks old. Now they are around 5-6 weeks and they have outgrown their brooder. I've been keeping them outside during the day with a little pool with both sun and shade during the day since it has been in the 70s-80s. At night they have been in a brooder inside our camper which is heated along with 8 pullets we were raising until they could go outside. The pullets are now old enough to go out into our smaller coop which has a run attached. We keep a low heat lamp on in their during chilly nights. The ducks are too big to be in the current brooder we currently have them in. Do you think it would be okay to move them out along with the pullets? They are nearly fully feathered and would have plenty of others to snuggle up with at night. Our nights in Pa have been pretty mild lately, in the 50s-60s.
