    95 degrees should work fine. Make sure you paper towel your duck afterwards and put it back under the brooder. Never leave it unattended and take it out when it just sits there doing noting. I use a paint tray when they are that young. You will be surprised to see how well they can dive.

    Not really, it should be temp of the brooder. A little bit less is fine. I just use my hand to see how warm it is.
