    How warm does it have to be before I can take my ducklings (2 weeks) outside for playtime? It seems to be taking forever for Spring to really get here.

    If it's a warm say high 50-low 60's and wind isn't blowing probably would be okay for a short period, remember mama duck calls her ducklings to her when she feels they need warmed so you'll have to time it so they don't get chilled.
