    if its warm enough they cann go outside but just make sure the water is not freezing. cold is one thing but you dont want it tooo cold because the ducklings will chill.

    I put mine completely outside at 2 weeks, and that was in March Kansas weather! And I put a small tub of water too. They are tougher than you think! Have fun!

    I think it depends on what part of Missouri your in [​IMG]
    yesterday we had a quick shower and today its cloudy and very windy, I'm just waiting for the rain.

    My 3 week olds are outside, put can go inside their house and get under the heat lamp if they need too.

    Congrats, they are so cute!
