Boy it is cold outside. We expected our well to freeze up, but it did not. We did build a well house over it after having it frozen up several times. The well house is insulated and we've put an oil filled heater in it. Worked well, yet I still had buckets full of water in the house ready to be used to unfreeze it. We did build a shelter in the small duck run, added hay bales, and put hay onto the ground so they can come out today. The main concern is frost bite to their feet, so we did all this extra work. It seems to work out fine. It is very cold with -2F (-19C) and they are outdoors. They still can get back into the heated duck house, but they choose to be outside. They are all sitting the the outdoor shelter filled with nice hay and tons of seeds to be found. Watched the news on TV and saw the pardoning of the turkeys by the President at the White House. Nice little speech, but what I thought was funny are the names of the white turkeys. Apple and Cider. We will have a small turkey meal tomorrow. We've just bought a breast roast for the two of us. Don't plan on cooking to much either. Can't eat that much food anyway. Anyway, happy Thanksgiving to all of you. Please share your wealth with the soup kitchen or homeless shelter and donate some eggs to them.
