Aylesbury Ducklings

 Aylesbury Ducklings
I have some Aylesbury Ducklings and they are now 2 weeks old ... I have been
putting them out each morning and they have been spending all day on a
fenced off part of the pond.  I take them in at night and put them under a
lamp for warmth.

At what age can I leave them outside on there own and when should I start
feeding them something other than duck starter food.

I am concerned because there are four Aylesburys on the pond 1 male and 3
females.  From the previous owners story, the male killed all the ducklings
last year and I don't want that to happen again this year.

I am living in Nova Scotia (Zone 5a) The temperature outside is fairly
constantly hot 80 deg F and above, ie, today it is going to be 31 deg C (90
deg F).  Are the other other ducks likely to attack them if I let them loose
on the pond. Is it safe to let them loose at this age.  I cannot wade into
the pond to get them out if they get into trouble ... I have to canoe ... a
bit slow.

Thanks again for all the wonderful advise I am receiving.
