I will be building my duck house very soon and have a few questions.
I live in Illinois and the winters can be pretty harsh. I know that they will need a heated water bowl, and heat lamp while its cold. The thing I wonder about the most is cleaning the duck house during winter. What do you do, and what works best? I cant imagine going outside every day in below zero weather to clean duck poop! I hear hay works good?
I was considering a chicken wire floor that would allow the poop to fall down into a tray. Would this harm the ducks feet? I also wonder about them freezing during the winter.
All tips, hints, suggestions, etc. will be much appreciated before I build my duck coop!
