In the Brooder
- Apr 3, 2014
Hi everybody! So here it is...I have six ducklings (rouens and pekins) that are about 5 weeks old, they are getting to big for the brooder and I could frankly use the brooder space to split up my chicks as they are growing quickly too. I have built them an enclosure with a raised cedar house, filled the house with about 4 inches of pine straw and a brooding light. My concern is that although it is in the 50-60 degree range during the day, we are still getting some pretty cold nights high twenties and low thirties. The ducklings are fledging out well...do you think they will be ok? Thank you in advance!
