Please forgive me, I am brand new to the world of ducks so this is likely a silly question. I have two ducks, a Pekin and a Pekin-Crested. As many of you on the east coast have experienced, we've had constant rain ALL day. They have a shelter attached to their pen and the area of their food and water is covered by a tarp (temporary measure) which allows that area to stay relatively dry. However, almost all day they have stood in the pouring rain, seemingly unaffected. Sometimes they'd hop in the pond or stand by the food bowl but usually out in the rain. They never go into their shelter until I head out at night for "bedtime." Is this normal duck behavior? Should I encourage them to go into the shelter? It was in the upper 40s / low 50s today. Which brings me to a second question: beyond a heated watering system, any special precautions I should take as the weather gets colder and snow may fall? We have a green house which is something we're considering adapting to house them on terrible days but I'm not sure what a terrible day IS for a duck. Any advice is appreciated!! Many thanks!!
