PLEASE those dealing with this nasty arctic cold be sure you have proper shelter for all of your animals including those geese you all love so dearly. Extra straw and pine shavings to help keep them warm is a must as well. Ducks and geese have down coats yes, but they can not protect themselves from frost bite and the possible infections FB can lead to. We as owners MUST provide them proper housing to protect them from the elements. IMO to not provide proper shelter is animal cruelty.
