I believe the title says it all...when do I drain my ducks pond for winter?
Our days are 60's-70's and our night are consistently hitting the 40's but last night we hit 37! I don't want my ducks to go swimming and get sick!!

We had countless ducks and geese when I was growing up with a brook that ran on the farm. They would be in the water year round unless it was frozen. The only problem they ever had was if the ground they slept on was icy sometimes their feathers would get froze to the ice. They should be fine without you draining the water.

Mine is currently froze over. I've been breaking a thin layer of ice everyday for a while but yesterday when I tried (tried being the key word) to break the ice it was pretty thick. We're fixing to get some very cold weather, so they're gonna have to do without. lol
