I have two ducks. They are both less than 6 weeks old. But a little more than five. I was wondering for their age if it is okay to let them outside all the time now. Even when it is raining or gets colder throughout the night? They are really starting to stink up the house!

duck question
by: Tracie

This is for parrot questions, but I will help you with this one. Until the ducks are fully feathered, and that's around 7-9 weeks old, they have trouble regulating their body temperature and need heat. You can create an outside pen with a heat lamp, and move them outside of your house though. Just make sure wild animals can't break into the pen and eat them, of course. ;-)
