[​IMG] They right now look pure kacki campbell ....Thank goodness. But..... The kicker is NONE of the girls are coming forward to claim these lil guys...... [​IMG] Not a Duck is acting like she should so I have a dump situation going on lol A Hatch and dumping. Bad Mama duck. I have them under a heat lamp with food and water . All I can say is those lil ones better grow quickly Michigan winters come early and are really cold. [​IMG]

    My ducklings are a month old and I am really surprised at how well they tolerate the cold. I'm not that far south of you, you know how cold it's been here in the mornings. And my little duckies just run right outside and hop into their pool every morning.

    My rouen ducklings are fully feathered at 8 weeks, I suspect yours will have enough feathers to be toasty by November.
