@Amiga it's a mixed flock- 4 welsh harlequins (2 m, 2f), 2 Pekins, 2 Cayugas. I'm counting on the fact that if it gets really cold we will have the option of bringing them into the barn, or heat the duck house a bit. I hope it won't be a disaster starting in the fall... I considered waiting until spring, but was hoping to start getting eggs by next spring!
@Little lake Phi thanks for sharing your experience! Luckily we are pretty far from our nearest neighbors, but that doesn't mean a dog couldn't wander over. Honestly, I'll have to be more careful of OUR dog than anyone else's. Lol.
