How warm do you think it would be in my sweater if it's 65 degrees outside? ( a mallard ducking approx one day old crawled onto my lap at the lake while I was camping). I know I'll need a heat lamp or heating lad but until I can set things up is putting her in my sweater going to keep her warm enough? I think at this age she needs 85-95 degrees. She's oretty active running around and it was only 48 when she found me so she was running around in pretty chilly temperatures. Yes I waited a few hours for her mom. I'm guessing something happened and she was not able to come back. They don't leave them for more than a few minutes and that's only in danger. She's drinking and eating and running so I think she'd healthy. I just don't want her to catch cold before I set her up. Do you think being pressed against my body underneath my sweater will be enough for now? Also I don't want her to get hurt by the lamp at night do I'm probably going to keep her with me... Not sure. Anyhow in my sweater good enough?
Thanks for your help.

your skin temperature is about 97 degrees, you won't loose much heat inside a sweater, so you should be good.1
