Chickens & ducks crowd around their daily dose of hot water
Twinville commented here the other day about her spoiled hens and how they’d probably be wanting her to draw them a warm bath next. I guess that makes my hens and ducks really spoiled. In winter I take out a bucket of hot water and pour it into a dishpan for them. The ducks stick their entire heads into the “bath”.
The past few days of warm (in the upper 30′s) weather we’ve enjoyed have only been a teaser. Now we’re under a winter storm watch, expecting 2 to 6 inches of snow tomorrow, 40 mph winds, and windchills to 30 below. I’m hoping it doesn’t actually turn out that bad because I was really looking forward to tomorrow! Madeline has a double header basketball game scheduled after school, and then in the evening Olivia is supposed to play a 3rd-4th grade exhibition game during halftime of the varsity girls basketball game. But I guess Mother Nature will be determining our schedule.
