Well, today my daughter found the first muscovy egg. It was frozen solid, sitting in the bedding in the middle of the coop. No one was claiming it. AAAACK. It is too cold here to be brooding babies. They have a light that gives them about 14 hours of light. I wanted them to have enough light so they could get enough to eat each day but am wondering if I did them a disservice by letting them have too much light. I don't really want to encourage laying as I would like to let them brood in the Spring time, not when everything is frozen solid. The breeder thought they would start laying in January, but that is too cold to be having baby ducks running around...I think. Does anyone else have duck brooding in the dead of winter?---Alaskan winter. What should I do?
