Welcome to the flock. There are excellent threads on DUCKS, in the "Other Backyard Poultry" forum above. If you have specific duck questions to ask, or to learn more about them.
I know it isn't the same but the wild ducks Mallards, tolerate the most dreadful winter conditions - well below zero temps, howling winds and lots of snow. Yet if they can find flowing water anywhere - they have a ball swimming around.
