    I wanted to let my babies walk around the house with their dipar on how long can I take him out the brooder for?

    I always take them out at that age for about 15 minutes....They get tired quickly and need a nap, drink and a feeding.....They will have so much fun running and noodling everything....


    Cheers!

    They will be fine for 15 minutes....Your House is warm...Mother Duck takes them out to forage and play also....Have no worries and have fun with them....

    Cheers!
