So I am a first time duck owner and couldn't be happier. I have one chocolate runner and one white crested. I delight in watching and interacting with them everyday. Soooo as I was changing the water in their pool today, for the third time, it dawned on me...I live in Northern Michigan...isn't it beautiful...aren't I lucky...(wait for it)...Uhhh, what am I going to do with these characters in the winter?! I know we are at the beginning of summer but because it might take some time could anyone tell me how they house their ducks in the winter? It's the way they get water everywhere that I'm worried about. It will freeze very quickly.
