    How do we get them to go in the coop at night?

    For me, FOOD is the golden ticket to get my ducks inside. I know some don’t like to keep food and water inside overnight and I agree it does make a mess, but (this time of year) they all line up like little soldiers at exactly 5:00 outside the duck house. Food crumble, peas, dried mealworms...

    Getting ducks

    Congrats on getting your ducks! I do agree with less drakes...or many more girls. I had 4 drakes to 2 girls once. In their first mating season it was an absolute disaster. And the girls can get harmed by too much amorous attention. I have 5 Welsh girls, they are really incredibly sweet.

    Anyone sick of winter?

    Whew! The duckies survived last night’s frigid cold just fine! I had somewhat of a sleepless night. I know our friends in the north have it worse than here, so I hope everyone got through the cold okay. There were flecks of ice crystals inside the house on the walls. Looks like I’m going to...

    Anyone sick of winter?

    I’m also nail-biting for the next few hours here in Ohio. Not as cold in Vermont, but will get a low of 4 degrees tonight. Lots of clean dry straw and water heater. When I took my dog out a few minutes ago, I noticed ice crystals forming inside the duck house windows. I adjusted the exhaust...

    How often do ducks need water to swim in?

    They might really enjoy a kiddie pool.

    Lol, I would wish for rain over freezing snow, but I guess the grass is always greener.

    Anyone sick of winter?

    I’m soooo ready for Spring. Although it’s mild here today, we still have a lot of snow and ice. Duckies’ pond is solidly frozen so I’ve been lugging 20+ gallons of water daily from my basement to their house and kiddie pool. Thinking of getting a heated hose...they’re kinda pricey though. Has...
