    Could i keep 4 baby pekin ducks in a 10 by 10 dog kennel with two dog plastic houses filled with straw for the winter. Once winter is over they would be fred range in my natural big goldfish pond. Would they be okay in the kennel because it does het really cold were we are.

    It depends on how the kennel is set up. If there is wind and snow protection and the straw is thick and warm, they should do wonderfully. You can also try stacking some hey bales next to it for insulation.

    All and all, it sounds like a good idea to me. [​IMG]
