when to put my ducklings outside??


May 8, 2017
so i have three (adorable) welsh harliquin duckling that are about 6 and a half weeks old and i'd like to know if i should let them outside soon. theyre starting to get too big for where their staying now and creating quite the mess. i'm hesitant to put them outside due to the all the down pouring rain where i live and the temps in the day reaching only a little over 60 or 50 and the nights being in the thirties. i'm very conflicted about to do please help.

Do you still have any heat source for them inside? If so, stop using it and start transitioning them to outside. If they haven't been spending anytime outside, you need to start putting them out there for a bit at a time so they are used to the temps if they aren't already feathered out. Just gradually leave them outside a bit longer each day and by the end of the week, they should be good to go.

If they have been going out, then toss them out there.
