We moved to a private lake community a few months ago and we live right on the lake. I bought 6 ducklings a few days ago. We have 4 pekins, 1 mallard, and 1 khaki cambpell (think that's what it is.) We've got them set up with everything they need in a huge dog kennel (heat lamp, clean food/water, paint pan for swimming, clean shavings, etc.) I've brought them in during the night to keep them warm. My ultimate plan is to slowly acclimate them to the lake. We have a kiddie pool for them when they are bigger, so they won't go straight to the lake. I plan on building a duck house in the next few weeks and when they are bigger, I'll get them to sleep in their house at night. If I let them out myself in the morning to go to the lake then put them back up before nighttime, will they be relatively safe??
