I just moved our 10 ducklings out onto the screened porch, totally shaded. It's 82° and breezy. Several are panting. How are they going to make it through the summer, when it's 100°?! Do I just have a wimpy batch, or is this typical?

Do they have a deep bowl with cool water? they do get hot but as long as they have a way to cool off they should make it just fine.

They do have a deep bowl they can get their heads into, but they're young so don't have swimming water all the time yet. It's not humid, at least by NC standards. They are 3 and nearly 4 weeks. Still panting away. poor guys!
