    Today I let my 3 week old Rouen ducklings hang out in their little pen with their pool. (which is not filled up with that much water) So I left them. I would check in every 20 minutes or so and everything is great. I noticed today that their tail feathers are falling out, and the brown/camo adult feathers, that look look like hens feathers do, are coming in. Also, today when I picked one up it was quacking! AT 3 WEEKS! is that early? I still can't sex them, but they are huge now.
