The last two days I have noticed no change in my ducks food and water dishes. Now that it’s been two days I’m getting concerned. They look fine. But, ducks can’t go without water right ? And I will add it is winter here in Minnesota. Anyone else have this happen ?

Ducks tend not to drink as much water in the winter as they usually do in warmer months. To clarify, you haven't seen the ducks eat or drink at all the last two days?

Thank you for your reply.That is correct. Their food and water in their dishes have not gone down at all. Their coop is open during the day but, there is only snow in our yard right now.

We had snow here in Waco, TX, two weeks ago and it was the first time my chickens saw the stuff. They ate it, a lot. They ate their feed but replaced their time at the water fountain with snow.
Thank you. Maybe that’s what my girls are doing too.
