    Granny I don't think that ducks have to have water to swim in they are just happier. So you should be able to keep her over the winter just fine. The only other option might be freezer camp and have for the Holidays.

    We hit 99 today. Sky super duper hazy from all the fires on west coast.

    Got the rest of the furniture into the last room. Now just put up curtains and rod. hang mirror and put lamps together.

    Well I am off to bed. Sweet dreams everyone and warm fuzzies

    Ducks don't have to have to dunk their whole body in the water but they do need a container deep enough to dip their head in to clean their nostrils & eyes.

    If you put 3 or 4 inches of water in the bathtub they are ecstatic & will splash & flap wings & run back & forth & do shallow dives. Then you drain the water & they groom themselves.

    They are really a blast to watch.

    I slept in on accident. Still work out from yesterday. About to take the pup for our walk, but it's already 72 so it's not going to be nearly as nice as yesterday. :/

    Morning all, little late myself. I am not going to be able to catch this duck and bring it in the house for a romp around my bathtub. LOL she is a little wild. I have heater for water but I just didnt know if they have to have bath or what. If I did treat her to a bath and its -10 out wouldnt she get sick ?
    I want gravy !!!!!

    Lazing around this morning. Going later with my sis to visit a sustainable farm that sells all sorts of goodies, fresh produce and canned goods. And eggs. Very curious to see how much they charge for eggs and the rest. Sometimes I feel stuck in the 90's as far as prices go. For 20 years I've been waiting and expecting prices to go back to "normal." I mean $1 per lb for cabbage? just doesn't seem right, especially when you can buy whole chicken on sale for $1/lb. Don't get me started on apples... I have high expectations for this new place. I expect their prices will be very high. [​IMG]

    Do you have a yard or a patio or balcony? I would start a garden or grow at least tomatoes in a container.

    I did away with a lawn years ago. It's all food flowers with carpet strips in the paths & used bricks. No weeds.

    I have grapes, hardy kiwi, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, an herb garden, sunchokes and 1 each apple, pear and cherry trees. I smile fit to bust when I see store prices.

    There are pick your own vegetables but no orchards anymore.
