    Where's the heat lamp? Also, you might want to cover a few sides with cardboard or fabric (towel, blanket) to keep the heat in a little.

    As someone has said before heat lamp and maybe an area where it was covered around the pen so it would keep some heat in.

    Also is the feed containers held down by anything? If not you might wanna get something to keep them held down because ducklings like to knock things over.

    If they're in the house and you have air conditioning, they'll need the heat lamp. They might not spend much time under it but it's better safe than sorry. You could brood them outside but I wouldn't do it in that cage. It would be too hard to maintain temps.
