We bought baby ducks two weeks ago and they are about half feathered now. We have an enclosed pen area for them next to our chicken run all ready and waiting. We've put a large dog house in it which we'll fill with hay so they can have shelter.
How do I know when it's time to move them outside? It's getting warm now in north central Indiana, 50s, 60s, 70s in the day and 30s, 40s at night. They are quickly outgrowing the kiddie pool they are in! Do they have to be fully feathered before we can put them outside in their new pen?
