My ducklings are about a week old. I was wondering how long they can be away from their heat lamp and if its safe to let them wonder around my yard, while supervised, for a little while?

Thanks,
Will

Hi, Will, they need to be at around 85F at one week - if it's a nice sunny day, then 75F would probably be fine - I would walk mine around with a temporary plastic poultry fence around them to keep from misadventures.

Thanks for the reply. We let them out for a few minutes while I changed their bedding. They seemed to enjoy the new experience.
