(This is the first time our ducks and chickens have lived through fall, so we don't know how to winter...) It's supposed to get well below zero where I live tonight. We have chickens, goats, and two ducks. The goats are in the barn, and the ducks and chicks normally live in a shed nearby. Because it's going to get so cold tonight, we are putting the birds in the barn with the goats, and a barn-heater-thingy-ma-bob. The chickens will all go into the rafters to roost, but I'm worried about the ducks. They don't fly, are ...lets say 'clumsy' on land, and if any raccoon or anything was hungry, well, they are sitting ducks. Litterally. Normally when they are in the shed they are fine, but the barn has gaps around the bottom big enough for things to get through. How do we keep the duck from being the next meal of a raccoon looking for warmth?
