    Hi,I ordered my ducks somewere around october I think and they are all feathered out and in the garage,there around 8-10 weeks old.I am fed up with the all the cleaning I got to do so they dont smell like once every 2 days.3 of them are mallards and the other one is a pekin would you think they could face the temperature(20-30degrees)in a small cozy coop?I checked them and they have all there downy feathers and are nicenfluffy.

    I would think they would be OK, I put mine out at about 10 weeks as long as they look fully feathered and we get a lot colder than 20 - 30 - we get 20 - 30 below
