    It is -22 this morning. We have fed and given clean water to our geese, chickens and ducks. The outside faucet is frozen, so we are toting buckets from the bathroom to the goose pen and chicken/duck coop. Pen and coop temperature were in the mid 30s. The geese are not happy with being stuck inside. We brought our "pet" goose Sissy inside. She is a "loner" goose (she usually does not hand with the rest of the geese, and she does not like the noise in the "daytime pen. She has washed herself in the bathtub and is relaxing at the moment.
