    Its getting colder out, and I put my ducks outside in the snow every day.
    I was just wondering do ducks get frost bite on their feet, if so is it common?
    Thanks!
     
  2. Yes, they can. If they are dry & out of the wind, that helps, a lot. I have lost a few to frostbitten (off) feet before....

    yes , and if you let them out in the winter be carefull with ducks they have no felling in there feet so they can get frostbite.
