This may be a dumb question on my part but lately going out to check on my ducks, their feathers are frozen! I thought ducks cleans off the additional water to prevent that....should I be doing something?
We are all concerned about a ducks well being because they depend on their owners for their safety and comforts. Many of us have been taking crash courses on the duck issues and problems that can happen with our winter weather. When duck owners apply post, we know they care and that makes us all very pleased. I am new to this and love this informative site. It seems like longer then 2 months since I have ducks. Probably because I am having such a great time here.Thanks for the advice! The ducks has a house that they go into to lay the eggs with hay....Their feathers looks like they just got out of the pond and the feathers froze wet. They are still laying everyday as well as the chickens..I guess they are happy! By the late afternoon, they are thawed out but it still worries me. I had to put a tarp around the outside yard to prevent wind because it did get pretty gusty the other day. No signs of sickness....but as I said earlier, this is my first year with poultry and ducks and I don't want to do something that will cause them to be miserable!
