    Hi I was wondering how long you should keep a heat lamp in with ducklings? Mine are two weeks+ old. There starting to lay far away from the lamp so I'm guessing that it's getting too warm in the brooder for them. When can I just take the whole thing out? There khaki campbell ducks. Any advice is appreciated! :)

    The first week should be around 90* and then drop it 5* each week till they are fully feathers or you reach the normal outside low.
