We live in Florida so it is by no means cold here right now. Our ducklings have been kept indoors in a large kiddie pool at night (they jump out of it and poop all over my front bedroom tile floor) they spend the daytime in thier fully enclosed pen with a coop house on my back patio. We've had them inside for 4 weeks (not sure of exact age when we got them)they are almost fully feathered just some fuzz on their backs. I put a heat lamp on and left them outside. I feel like a terrible duck mom on one hand but relieved on the other not to wake up to that barn smell across the back part of my house. I'm OCD about cleaning the pen but even with that can't beat that smell and the poopy duck footprints allll Over the floor when they escape. Am I terrible? I've checked them obsessively and they seem perfectly fine. Anyone else move thier ducklings out with a heat source before they were fully feathered?
