I just recently purchased 5 ducklings which I'm keeping in my house. I was informed they are about 7 weeks old. We have a small covered cage for them outside. I put them out in the morning till bout sunset. They love it . My question for any experienced duck parent is when can they stay outside over night. We live in Delaware. Any feedback would be a big help

At 7 weeks they should be fine to be outside overnight, as long as they have a predator-proof house that blocks out drafts. I put mine outside at just over 6 weeks old. As long as they have most of their feathers, they're ok to be out.
