    If any of my ducklings hatch, would it be a good idea to bring them and their mama into the house for a while? Its still about 47 degrees F here. I have a large guinea pig cage they could all live in for a few weeks. Or are they okay because they're with their mama?

    Mom will keep them warm.
     
  3. With my Broody Hens I keep them in my garage in a brooder so Momma and the babies can have privacy and warmth...I then put them back into the flock at around 3 weeks....

    Cheers!

    They will be fine at those temps out with their mom. She will keep them warm. And as long as they have dry covered areas/ coops. Etc to get out of wind and rain
