    I have three week old ducklings and week old chicks. I'm figuring the chicks will be staying indoors for a few more weeks at least.

    But with the ducklings, it's hitting 90s here during the day and dropping to mid to high 50s at night. I'll have their run and duck house built next weekend, would it be safe to move them outdoors without a heat lamp?

    How many ducklings do you have? I think if you had several it would be fine to move them out once the house is completed. They sure will have more fun out in the sun:) Observe how they are doing and give them bedding to snuggle in.
