We are new pet duck owners. My DH rescued a pekin at a local park early this last fall. Poor thing was a mess, all wrapped in fishing line and infected from cuts/bites and who knows what else. Well we nursed him back to health and he is enjoying a new life in my garden and koi pond. We have not had a problem for the last 4 months getting him into his "duck house" at all every night after dark. All we would do is call him and he would waddle in. The last two days, he will NOT get out of the pond-we have about 4 inches of hard snow all around and on the rocks surrounding the pond-his normal path out is clear, bit may be a bit slippery. There is really no where else for him to get out of the water to dry off or warm up. Koi food wouldn't even coax him (this is unusual). I am worried he is going to freeze to death or get sick. He is an older larger pekin and LOVES feeding time. I am worried he is going to get sick or freeze to death. Am I worrying to much or should I let him figure it out and call the shots?
