Ducks Love Winter

December 23, 2008 Ducks Love Winter (Y360-1)

We were surprised at how much our five Cayuga ducks enjoy freezing weather. For several nights when it got down to 4 degrees much of the pond froze over. However there was a small two-foot square area where the waterfall flows into the pond that did not freeze and all five ducks tried to squeeze into that little water hole.

I stayed up most of the night checking on them, afraid they might get frozen into the ice. Eventually they all got out of the water towards morning and got into the duck blind we built for them and tucking their heads under their wings, they all went to sleep.
