    wow you stole them. I don't know if they would do good in my area. I've heard their top hat likes to dip in the water dish and we get hard winters here.

    Yeah, he's a keeper... Number 4 boy is ours together. Kind of just happened!!! 6 months after living together and then it took seven years to get married. Hahaha. Second marriage for both of us. Number 4 boy is his first kid... Besides the six months prior of us dating.. Knew him two years before dating though.

    Well unfortunately because of how cold it is all winter I use the heat water bowl. I just don't like the one style of heated poultry waterers that they have. They leak to easy, as it is I place my heated dog dish outside in a enclosure to keep the moisture out of the coop. The only time that I put water in the coop was for about a week last winter it ran in the negatives during the day as well as night and the girls refused to go out. Just took water out a couple of times a day, let them drink their fill, then removed the bowl. It still caused all the windows on three sides to frost up.

    oh that's good, I was lucky, got my keeper on the first try. We've been married for 31 years. We have 2 grown daughters & 3 grandkids. 13, 21 months & 7 weeks are there ages.

    That's the problem I have. Just gave away a beautiful Blue Laced Red Wyandotte roo a couple of weeks ago. Got the eggs from a breeder who was selling them left & right, but I couldn't hardly give him away.
