    I have two 7 week old ducklings, they have been doing just fine outdoors during the day, but I bring them in at night.
    They are outgrowing their indoor set up and I wanted to know others thoughts are on an appropriate age to let them sleep outdoors in their predator proof enclosure with a bed.
    I live in southern California- lows tonight are 61.
    I have found other articles and discussions but the information varies and would love to have some well seasoned advice.

    Thanks!!

    I would say, if they're mostly/fully feathered, that they should be fine outside.

    If it is predator proof they should be okay. How did it go?
