7 Ways to Tell If Your Duckling Is Cold

Ducklings may be cold when they plop down instead of walking, huddle close together, or have black spots on their feet.

Let's look on to find out how you can help keep your ducklings from being too cold.

They Plop Down Often

The reason is that their legs and feet are the most exposed parts of their body since there are no downy feathers down there to keep them warm.

They Huddle Close Together

If you notice that your ducklings are getting too close to each other, you should know that they are feeling too cold and need your help.

They Keep Hobbling on Their Feet

If the ground is too cold, your ducklings will stand on one foot and shift from foot to foot constantly. This usually happens when is there is no insulating bedding on the floor or ground.
