Ducklings 5 weeks old!

Yesterday, May 16th they turned 5 weeks old! Getting closer to fully feathered and moving out to the outside pens and having their pool filled! Last weekend it was really warm so I put up a barrier and opened the big garage door so that they could get some air, but I knew there was some chilly weather coming so they couldn’t have a pool yet. They can get easily chilled when they aren’t fully feathered.

Some photos below also of their new outdoor pens. Most of the predator proofing is done (lots of hardware cloth on the steel pens!) however I still have to cover sharp pieces with duct tape, build their pool deck, and put their tarp and bedding into the duck house/shed. It’s coming along though!
