    We hatched ducks at our Preschool and our ducks were born two weeks ago. Three pekin and two mallard. They are thriving and doing well in the brooder with the heat lamp. They come out occasionally to be held by the children. The camp up the street would like to take two ducks pn Monday. Do they need a brooder and heat lamp? How long do baby ducks need the lamp?
