    Build your coop slowly. At those temperatures- the ducklings shouldnt be outside until they are around 6- 8- weeks at night. Without feathers to keep them warm its just to cold for them at that temperature. If you were able to provide a heat source for them in the coop they could go out sooner. But they can spend days outside in the mean time as long as you give them somewhere warm to cuddle up if they get too cold.

    I have 60 watt bulb in their brooder for heat plus they are in room and room temp is generally high than outside.
