Is it normal for ducks to "go off their feed" in the winter? They are eating enough to get them through,,,, im guessing. But it dosent seem like enough to me. I have 3 mallard drakes and 1 female magpie and 2 male magpies. I know its not the right ratio,,, but got these ducks kind of dropped on me this fall. It just seems like they arent eating nearly enough to keep them aliave but still seem to be thriving. A fresh gallon of water every day plus another half gallon so the bucket dosent freeze tight to the plywood. ( im in alaska and have -12 right now) I would really appreciate any input,,,, especially if anyone else here is in Alaska,, or a cold state. thanks.
