Freezing ducks?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My elderly mother and her senior neighbors are worrying about the wild ducks on their backyard community pond. How can I reassure them that the ducks will not freeze to death? They live in Ft.Wayne, IN. So far this winter, the low temps. Have been around 8 degrees.

Just ask them how they think the ducks still remain in existance if they are in danger of freezing?  If they froze, there would be none left.

Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan big_smile.png

 

As long as their pond remains unfrozen they should be fine.

Home of the world's cutest dachshund, one crazy blue heeler, two cats,
              one fat pony, and many (but not too many!) chickens

              Can anyone tell me, how many are too many chickens?
