At what age can I take the heat lamp from my ducklings? They're being kept inside.
What breed(s) are they?
The little ones are Khaki Campbells, Runners, and Cayugas. They're about 2 weeks old.
What is the tempatur of your room where the ducklings are kept?
The whole house is staying in the mid 60s.
I had my Khaki's out from the heat at 2 weeks, in about a 65 degree house. At just less than 3 weeks I put them outside in 30 degree nights, with the heat light. Within a few nights it was 40ish and I turned off the light because they didn't seem to go to it. I have 5 and they huddle together always, so seems like they keep warm that way. They are almost 4 weeks and I don't even think about it anymore. You can see my set up on my website. I am thinking we baby them more than we need to Good luck!!
Quote:I keep my little ducks with the 4 older ones and my 2 geese, they all curl up to sleep, it's real cute. Ok I'll turn the light off and see how it goes.
