Well, what does your coop look like...pics?Hi All,
I’m a new Duck Mom and this is my first winter with my babies outside. I have a pen with pine chip bedding in it and I wanted to make sure that was good enough for them to stay warm.
Thank you for the advice. I am new here and don’t know how to use this site. I live in the suburbs of Philly. It gets pretty cold here in the winter. So far the coldest has been 32. I can post pics tomorrow during the day if their coop. Thanks again for your help.Well, what does your coop look like...pics?
