    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but I would suggest posting on our duck section at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks and take advantage of our duck experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in getting your ducks.

    I don't know much about ducks, either. However, if you post in the Ducks section of the forums, I'm sure members there can help. [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC - visit the duck forums. Chickens don't mind snow that is not too deep - in Homer you can expect them to be 'coop bound' most of the winter.

    Jersey Giants are a very cold hardy breed, so if they want to roam around in the snow, I wouldn't worry about it, as long as they are back in the coop by dusk.
