    Yes you can just use some wire mesh and put a heat lamp in the duck house
     
  3. How do you attach the heat lamp?can you use the heating pads that they use in brooders?

    A draft free house is more important than adding heat.
    If you want to add a heat lamp, make sure it isn't over bedding and it is a heat lamp in good working order to reduce risk of fire.
