I have a pekin drake named Arboc. I got him as a chick this spring and now that winter is coming I don't know what to do. How well do pekin ducks do in cold climates? I'm afraid that the only shelter I can currently provide for him is a cardboard box, and he steers clear of the doghouse so I don't know what to do for shelter. Does anybody have any ideas for me on how to make a more suitable shelter for my duck? He's the only one I've got so he can't snuggle with any other ducks to keep warm. Also, do they have to be able to swim in their pond all the time, or would he be fine if I just gave him a bowl of water to drink from until spring comes again?
