This is my ducks first winter does it sound like I am doing things right? Their pond is frozen so I bought a rubber feed bowl big enough for them both to swim in--2 runner ducks, male and female. I fill it in the morning and dump it at night so I dont have to deal with a very frozen bowl. Inside they have a water bowl and feed placed inside a plastic litter box to catch excess water. I havent figured out a heater for that yet so it freezes at night and I give them fresh in the morn. A heat lamp is inside if it gets real cold and that keeps the food and water from freezing. I put grit in the water bowl and oyster shell in the feed. Lady Lulu started laying when I put a light in the house on a timer to extend the day. I coaxed her into laying in the nesting box with a wooden egg. Every morning I take them for a walk over to the little culvert creek. I wonder if they get any nourishment there or just like to nose around. Every other day they get to swim in the bathtub inside (husband not happy about that) sometimes with feeder fish crickets and lettuce. I've tried corn and peas and blueberies in the bath. They 1/2 eat the blueberries not interested in anything else much. They eat pellet chicken feed-organic in their house with water added to it. Is that enough nourishment for them? In the warm seasons they forage a lot. I try to keep the house and porch soft with litter so their feet dont get hurt. Is there anything else i can do for them? Thanks for your advice, susan in ct.
