I have noticed some of you getting new ducklings, hatching some and/or waiting for some to hatch and I just had a quick question. Being so late in the year, what do you do with them over the winter? Say they hatched today it would be like December before they were fully feathered or ready to go outside. So it's ok to take them out of the brooder and put them right outside when it's so cold? I'm just wondering because I wanted some Metzer's Runners and a few Toulouse Geese and I decided to wait until spring for that very reason. I'm waiting anyway at this point, (couldn't get the geese this late anyway) but I guess I would have been fine in going ahead and getting them?
