I'm getting my ducks ready for their first winter and everything was going well until I thought--what about the pool? I have a kiddie pool in with my ducks for watering and swimming purposes. It's all well and good during the summer but with the winter coming on I'm getting a little concerned. I love my ducks, but lord knows they are not the most intelligent creatures in the world. I live on the coast of North Carolina, so our winters are terribly brutal but we do get some freezing weather. I'm worried I'll come out one morning to feed my ducks and I'll have little duckie-cicles. Are they smart enough to stay out of the water in the cold weather (I doubt it)? Should I take their pool away for the winter months? If yes, then what it the best way to water them during this time? Any suggestions?
