Cold Winter


It seems like every time I look at the weather in Iowa it is extremely cold or snowing. Do the pheasant and quail handle winters like this year ok, or is this the type of weather that can cause mortality for the birds
The pheasants are ok as long as the snow doesn't get an icy layer on top and they can still dig through the snow for food. Quail don't do well except In southern Iowa because they can't dig through the deep snow like pheasants can.
