Hello all, I live in Michigan and we purchaced 12 chickens of various breeds and 2 peking ducks they were all about 3 days old at the time. Now they are 7 wks old when they were about 4wks old I moved they to a very nice coop with pen out back. I have a heat lamp for when its cool and have to use a 40wt light at night. When they were in the house they did not need the light at night, but now that they are out side they wont go into the coop with out it. For about the fitsr week I would put them in and closr their out side door. I leave it open now so when they get up they can go out on their own. If I have the light on in the coop they go in on their own at night to. They will lay by the outside door no matter how late it gets but they wont go in if the light is not on. they are all very happy and love all the attention they get. So is having the light on for them all night ok? also a friend gave us a 1year old peking she was not raised the same way so she is a little stand offish with us but gets along with the flock well. We have a small tub for water and face washing throughout the day and then a deeper tub for taking a bath where they can swim a little. The new duck will purch (yes purch) on the side and splash water on herself but wont go in. One time she slipped in and paniced like she could not swim. I don't feel this is good for her she should be able to swim. Do I need to teach her?
