We are BURIED in snow here in Mass. and I have 4 spoiled duckies who are none too pleased that their foraging grounds are covered in 3+feet of this cold white stuff! They will barely leave their shed and when they do, they waddle over to this small covered area near the house and hunker down in the corner. We've shoveled out their pen area and a few pathways in the yard but they just seem to hate walking on the snow/ice (although it's pretty comical watching them do it!). I have read that ducks are pretty hardy in cold weather as long as they have shelter to retreat to warm up in but mine just can't seem to handle it. Are they just spoiled or am I being a mean "mommy" sending them out to play with no boots and mittens?! Also, they are picky with treats. They really only like peas and meal worms. Other than that they eat their feed and would normally spend the rest of their day foraging for food. Now that foraging is out, what can I give them to substitute the greenery they were getting? Any other northern state duck owners here have any suggestions to help my ducks deal with the winter blues?
