    Got my two ducklings at 3 days old and will be turning 4 weeks this Thursday, so far so good. They are happy campers but are outgrowing their little home fast. They have some feathers and I was wondering if it is too soon to move them outside. We live in southern Arizona and nights have been around 40° average. Their home will be a fully enclosed pen and coop. These are our first experience with birds so anything will help, thanks

    Just two ducklings in 40 degrees at 4 weeks... yeah I think you can swing it. Just provide the heat at night in case they want it. :D

    What breed?

    Great because I really think they're trying to escape at this point :D
    I'm thinking they're khaki campbells. [​IMG]

    Aren't you sure those are 4 weeks? They look like 2 weeks! lol maybe they're just smaller breed than my mine. I have pekins, buffs, and splash Swedish. All bigger breeds compared to most.

    Yes they look like my khaki campbells. If they are 4 weeks then yes they can go outside . I would provide a heat lamp for a few nights and check on them and see if they are using it. my 3 week old khakis still sleep by the heat lamp a little bit. But most of the time arent very close.
