We are having our warm-up thaw this week where we are looking at close to 60 by end of this new week, I've moved the 4mth old ducklings/and adult ducks outside today in hopes that I can keep them outside. Am I safe to assume that they are fat enough and have enough down on them to put them outside now FT even though I know this is just a temporary warm up and we'll probably get another snow storm and in the 20's again, I'm hoping NOT any more teens or single digit temps, I'm sick of winter. I'm working on getting a kennel this week and shelter situated to keep them outside under our deck until the actual full spring thaw and move the kennel out onto our yard. I actually have a kiddie pool out on the deck today, it's 44 outside and they are loving being on the deck. Mom and Dad are outside with them and everyone is getting along just fine. Here are my October babies! I've only got 1 green head drake out of the bunch of Rouen/Runner mix. Have any of you put your ducklings outside FT yet?
