    18* here...invigorating. Not getting to freezing today...looks like winter's finally here.
    I realize our weather can't compare to that some of you have to endure...I feel for you.

    I just feel for my poor ducks. But they seem to be okay. I haven't checked on them yet. I'll go out soon. Don't want to open the door to their pens too much.it seems to stay somewhat warmer in there.

    I'm cold here in the 30s! I don't remember how I survived when I lived up north!

    Ducks must be pretty hardy. I don't pretend to know much about ducks (or anything else, depending on who you;re talking to), but I'm sure wild ducks have oil in their feathers from their diet. Do domestic ducks have the same on a commercial diet?

    Morning, Sally! Wow looks at all those pretty eggs :) Glad they're doing so well!! Can't wait to see those babies [​IMG] My young'uns are on their second snow day off today. They're just waiting for it to warm up a little so they can go outside and build a snow fort [​IMG] My shipped eggs are due to arrive today I'm worried they froze for sure (3 degrees low last night). Ive bought from this same breeder before so I know they will be packed and wrapped well in bubble wrap, and I'll let them warm up slowly, but I'm not expecting a good hatch with these. Have you hatched any that were frozen before?
