Hello BYCers! Long ago, I raised mallards in Santa Barbara, CA - and it was easy -- fresh water in the kiddie pool each day and the temps never got too hot. Neighborhood kids would come over with bowls full of snails just to see the ducks chow down! Now I live in the hot south, and we live in a lake community (read as: shared lake) - and I am wondering what additional care issues might arise? I have 8 hens, and have fans on them in the heat of the summer, and shade. Will the same do for the ducks? I just keep thinking about all of that down..... Thanks in advance for your help! Oh- and if anyone knows how sebastapol geese tolerate the heat, they are awfully pretty and I am tempted!!!
