    I live in Forsyth Co. North of Atlanta.

    How do you plan on winterizing for your ducks? I have three Cayugas and just trying to figure out what to do when the temps drop. How do you're chickens do during the winter. I know GA isn't as cold as the states up north so I wanted some opinions from owners down this way. Suggestions?

    I have only had chickens for 3 1/2 months and duckling for about 1 month, so im not quite sure about how the winter will go, for my chickens I have a coop,i will put plexie? glass in front of the windows with small holes drilled to make sure they have some air, I will add a thicker layer of pine shavings, and i heard they will also need vaseline on combs and wattles, that is pretty much it. As for the ducks, i am still researching on how to winterize them.

    Yes, it does freeze down here, sometimes. I really don' t do anything different. Just make sure the water keeps from freezing. The birds do just fine without any extra protection.
