With the female due to hatch her 8 eggs end of this month, and on how very cold it will be and going to get and the babies not having their adult feathers, and she is on 1 leg, I know she and her babies will have to be in the house or garage if I can keep a heated lamp on them, and I know it will be a struggle for momma to hop on 1 leg in the snow, so that is why she will be kept indoors with her babies,for that reason and plus she will have the company of her babies. Where as with my drake, he can stay outside, however he will be alone. Should I get him another partne to stay out there with him?? I was offered a Perkin yesterday, and perhaps a pair, and even a male Rouen, my one son really wants boths, but I'm just thinking of my drake runner now and winter. I mean I could also put him in the garage for the winter just keep them a part with a divider and I don't have to get another partner for him.
