Hi all in the Duck world! My name is Tyler and I actually own chickens, but I browse this forum often as my friend owns ducks. We are both pretty new to the "poultry" world and he ran into a very scary problem this morning when checking on his ducks. It seems that one of their beaks was frozen shut from the very cold evening after getting out of the water. Also, all of them appeared skinny without fluffy feathers. Could they have gotten wet just before freezing and then couldn't dry off?! He is on his way to get a heater for his duck pool and is now wanting to get a heat lamp or some kind of heater for his hatch/house for them. When he got the ducks he was told that he wouldn't need to get any kind of heater for them at all, but now he is second guessing that based on this morning. It got down to about 15* last night after a blizzard yesterday morning of heavy wet snow. Any recommendations? Heat or no heat in the hatch? Also, is this common for ducks to "freeze"? Thanks for any advice, I know that my chicken knowledge doesn't help with these water fowl!
