So our drake and hen Indian Runners surprised us about 2 months ago with 8 babies. They are now fully feathered and grown. We are into night Temps of 28 degrees when I get home and I find mama and papa in the house but all the babies outside the house? Is this normal? Do I need to make a separate house for the new ducklings? I fear they will freeze to death being out all night

Thanks thats what we are trying. They used to go in. It's only recently they have not been going in at night. I didnt know if this is a progression to "kicking them out of the nest". Also would they potentially breed within same family or are they unlikely to inbreed?
