Obviously, I will have time to prepare, but with summer days, although they are longer, they generally seem shorter with all of the work that gets puts forth with the nice weather... So here it is, my MIL brought over a turkey and a crested pekin. I know what I'm doing with the turkey, but as far as the Pekin, how do they winter?? I was not planning on a duck that decides to live here forever and from what I can tell, Pekins will stay. So I guess my question is , will he stay and opt to live with the chickens or will I have to make other accoopadations!! ( Get my pun!) Basically, do they winter well?? We hit -10 last year without windchill (Indiana). So I'm curious about how to best prepare for his stay here. HELP is greatly appreciated!! And I'd rather do it now than wait until the last minute-- I want to put him with the other ducks for now, but they are Mallards, and the turkey seems to be his only friend. I plan on housing the ducks and the turkey together, but am truly concerned about this duckling. I assume the mallards will fly away...leave the nest so to speak...and leave him here. My coop is insulated, so hopefully he can live with the girls???
