    My Pekin ducklings are pretty big now and are feathering well, but I don't know their age or how long I should keep them in a brooder. I am having to clean it out daily now and ducks really can turn a teaspoon of water into a mud hole. They just over a foot.[​IMG]

    if you are having temps into mid- upper70's during the day time you can put them into a penned area where they can get out of hot sun and be protected from rain or wind but at night they still need to be inside they are not fully feathered in. They can't keep themselves warm over night if temps drop into low 70's or below. They sure are cute. @Daniel Bartel
