    With the heat index today over 105 I wanted to do something to keep all the panting down.
    So I filled up this extra large cat litter tray that I use for my ducks (they are afraid of the kiddie pool), I filled it up with nice fresh water. Then I filled it with frozen peas, frozen blueberries, cabbage, lettuce, and ice cubes.
    What fun. It was the hit of the party! [​IMG]
    Funny thing is the ducks didn't get it, the chickens kept picking, and the turkey's climbed in like ducks and went bobbing mad, wading around in it.
