    Timely post, I was just about to inquire myself. I live in Marshall County, work in Ames. I'm new to chickens. How do you do your water for the chickens in the winter?

    I was just looking yesterday on the internet for a heated water bowl. I found one on www. jefferspet.com for 19.99 plus 6.95 shipping. I need to get two of them beings I can't quit hatching eggs. lol. We live near Osceola Ia in the country. First time since I was little having chickens. My 10.5 yr old son just loves them. What kind of chickens do you all have. I need some new blood for my buff orpingtons. A roo. The ostralorps come from mcmurray so they should'nt be related to each other.I'm building a pen for the orpingtons right now. Plus I have 13 eggs in the bator and they are going to be silkie and showgirl mix. Can't wait to see them:)

    "Chucktown" would be Charles City?? I don't really know where it is though. LOL! I am geographically challenged, for sure!

    I have 26 Gold Stars which will be cut in half, hopefully this week as my chicken guru friend is taking 1/2 of them.

    I am so amazed at how funny these peeps are. The come when you call them. I talk to them all the time. My daughter and I played with them and handled them since the very beginning.

    I have to say, its pretty fun having chickens, even though I'm pretty darn clueless about it. I rely on my chicken friends alot and also this board. The pics everyone posts are GREAT!!
