    We are lucky enough to NOT live where it gets severely cold.

    However so many do, and this issue came up on the duck forum (A duck with potential frost bite) and is WELL WORTH sharing here too so GOOSE OWNERS are aware the risk they put birds at in the winter without shelter.



    Quote: Note it says large body of open water, that is not a small hole in the ground pond or kiddie pool. Its a large capacity deep pond or lake.
