    It's a bitter sweet day, the ducklings have moved out of the house. They just turned 3 weeks andthey are just to messy to keep in the house any more. Though I think I'll bring them in at night. They love their little pool and are constantly in it. Here they are and you can see their setup.

    CUTE - I've been putting mine out for a week or so... mine are the same age and GAWD< I can't take the smell if they stay inside.

    I'm getting a shed ready - it better be ready THIS weekend, for them to move in, they should be ok out there.

    Right now I let them out of their enclosure and they're free-ranging with the chickens.... I keep checking them and they're having a BLAST

    Quote:Mine use to look just like that. I put my two out when they a month old. They have to hang out with the parents.

    Where do they go from there?
    I am very interested in ducklings, but wonder: Where do ya put 'em after they are babies?

    about 3 mo... If female it will start going peep peep quack peep peep male tend to peep longer and when they do quack it really raspy . Also if male the grey will start to get a green head when it begins to fully feather.
