    Hi all, im from the north west of england, I have just got my first Indian Runner duck and drake they are apricot trouts and are about 9mths old, I love them already.
    Im letting my children choose there names so at the minute they are Shriek and Fiona.

    Im a bit worried as ive heard its going to snow this weekend and wondering should I be doing anything to make sure they stay comfortable in the cold ..... how do your ducks and chickens deal with the snow ?

    hopefully I will get some pictures up soon.

    Greetings, Omadawn, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined our flock! I don't have a lot of experience with ducks in the snow. I know my chickens won't go out in it unless there are batches of bare ground - they stay in the coop if not. You might post in the duck thread below for more advice. Good luck to you!
