So we are digging out from the nor'easter this morning and I have a problem. We keep our ducks in a smaller room in our barn with outdoor access (at some point in the barn's history, a small 1' square door was installed in a outside wall). We fenced in the area outside the door for our ducks. The door sits about two feet off the ground outside and we built a ramp for them to get out. So this morning the snow is almost up to the door. In and of itself this isn't a problem, they get around on the snow just fine. The problem is that their food and water are kept outside (I don't want the mess inside). The feeder will sit on top of the snow, but of course the waterer won't. How do I deal with this for the next day or two. Do I need to shovel the 2 feet of snow out of their pen, or will they be okay for the day? What do they do when they free range and lakes are frozen over. I want to make sure they have what they need, but this drifting snow is a nightmare and this is the first time we have had more than 6 inches since we started raising ducks.
