New ducks

I just became momma to five ducklings. My question is, with it being so hot right now (80-90+) will they still need a heat lamp?
Congrats on your babies!! What breed(s)? Are they indoors or outdoors? They should be fine without it if it’s hot outside

I wondered how old are they? I kept my 3 day old Muscovy ducklings in the garage, no draft in a large storage tub and they did just fine in August with no heat in Ohio. I wasn't sure if these were newborns or a few days old.
 
How old I would think if your temps get 75 or below you could offer some heat at night do you have a heat plate or light? place the lamp at one end of their brooder and watch to see if they use it. I'd set it for around 80 if they are just newly hatched.
