I have two 6 week old Pekin ducklings... Because of the weather they haven't been outside much. It's been fairly cold and rainy. We are finally getting some good weather and their outside enclosure and house will be done within the week. Today I put them outside in a covered puppy pen right outside the door to give them some sunshine and get them used to be outside without me. I didn't go well at all! Unless I am out there with them they just cry out. I gave them about 20 minutes and talked to them through the screen door but every time I walked away they would continue to cry. I'm not sure what I am going to do if being outside without me causes so much distress for them! They need to go in their pen when it's finished as they are quickly outgrowing their inside pen and having them inside full time is NOT an option. Any ideas as to what I should do aside from moving into their duck house with them? Anyone else have a similar expirience? Help!!!
