Over fall break, next week, I am going to the flea market. Its the end of the season, and the animal people will have all of their left overs at lower prices. I would like to get a few ducklings (muscovy mostly) if they have them, but I'm not sure its wise. I have a silkie hen setting on eggs that will hatch the 25th of this month, but they will have a mama to keep them warm in the weather. When the ducklings are about 4 weeks old, they will have to go out. Will they be able to handle the cold weather, or should I refrain? I'm really wanting to get a few so they will lay in the summer next season, but not if they are going to suffer in the cold. Right now the days are in the 60's, but I'm not sure what they are going to be later on.
