    It's supposed to get to 80 today. I have some 2 week old maybe Pekins (little yellow ducks) can they go outside for a couple hours? They're under a lamp in the house but seem ok when they're not

    Oh yeah i would say yes. Make sure they arent in direct sun only- at least a shady spot to get to when needed.
    And then just keep a close eye, making sure not too hot and not too cold [​IMG]

    We live in the woods so there's lots of natural sunny/shady patches
