    When do you think they will fully feather out?! At how many weeks? I do have a duck hutch set up outside when they feather out... but not sure if they will outgrow their brooder by then. My pekins have begun to feather in, but barely.

    Quote:It's either 4 or 6 weeks, but it doesn't take them long at all.

    ETA: Just be sure to wean them off the light. If they get too much heat they won't feather out very good.

    i have an indoor set up. I built a small (6x 4 1/2ft by 3 feet tall) pen with a door for my ducks inside. I built it to fit underneath an old loft bed i had in college. (we use the top for for storage now). The pen is in my Painting studio, so the ducks keep me company while i paint. I put a vinyl floor from menards on the bottom and usually line that with a a tarp (the kind people use for boats). It works good. It houses them nicely and they like it. Here's a pic, don't mind my art mess...
