    Looks like a girl! I would move them out. You do of coarse have to hvae shelter and I would lock them in good at night and if the weather is cool just put a 100 watt bulb over them. Make sure it is nice and dry and you should be fine. We never have them in the house anymore (wisconsin) just outside in a draft free pen with 100 watt bulbs. Way better outside than having that mess inside.

    You can't really tell the sex at this age by looks; if it's quacking then it's easy to tell.

    The females always have the signature "quack" sound, but males haves a quieter, raspy voice. [​IMG]
