Winter is quickly approaching us here in the USA and I have read several posts where people are concerned about ducks being cold. I thought I would share this article so people can understand the how & why duck and geese feet were meant to survive, even in freezing temperatures. Hopefully, this will reduce some stress and worry the humans have for their feathered pets. http://askanaturalist.com/why-don’t-ducks’-feet-freeze/ Hope this helps. Ducks are actually quite hardy.
