How soon should i put my ducklings outside.

hi,

I was just wondering how soon is it ok to put my ducklings outside.

I have:
3 x muscovies at 8 weeks
3 x pekin X khaki cross at 6 weeks
5 x indian runner at 5 weeks

All have been raised inside in cages but obviously im keen to get them outside. Is it too early to sstart putting them outside. Thanks for any help.

pick a day thats not freezing cold an put them out for a bit an increase it every day untill they are used to it then put them in their pen or whatever an a nice draught free house.
