    Here are some photos of my beloved Khakis enjoying a winter day here in the Catskills (I think I am obsessed with my ducks as I am with my grandchildren!).

    Oh and my ducks hate the snow, every time I went outside to check on them today they were all hunkered down somewhere out of the wind. course maybe they have more sense than I give them credit for. It was a rough day today. [​IMG]

    They seem quite at home on the snow, don't they?

    Thanks all! These ducks seem to enjoy inclement weather be it rain or snow. And I enjoy watching and caring for them.

    Lovely ducks!
    My flock just experienced their first snow. They didn't like it at all. But my goose thought it was great fun and spent the entire day "drinking" the snow.

    Our ducks had their first big snow day the other day too! Silly things. We let them out and Nut walked a few feet, decided it was too cold, laid down and tucked up her feet hehe We convinced them to follow us into the shop with some meal worms.
