It's almost Aug 1st here in New Hampshire, which means only 2 more months til temps plummet. We are new to ducks, having received our babies in May, and we have not yet gone thru a winter. Very nervous about this as we usually have snow on the ground from late October to end of April. And Dec, Jan, Feb can be -20 with 8 feet of snow! Our Duck house/pen is only 10 feet from our back steps, but having nightmares about keeping a path shovelled, being able to swing the door open, keeping ducks sheltered and keeping a water dish unfrozen. How do you folks in cold climates deal with all of that?
