    Yes. They were stock tank de-icers. Sold on amazon as pond heaters. NOT! I was trying to keep a small koi pond above 60 for the algae eaters. By the time I needed them, I couldn't return them. Not much use out here!

    Its easy to do, you probably would have hurt yourself. Which brings me to a story about hubby & I when we were early married. Of course we had kids already and we all were horsing around on the living room floor when hubby thought it was funny to pin me down & tickle the daylights out of me. When I finally got loose I swung to slug him in the shoulder. He bobbed just as I swung. My knuckles connected with his very bony shoulder blade. Turns out when I slugged him it pushed my knuckle on my baby finger back into larger knuckle messing up my hand. It started swelling right away & was very painful. Hubby had to take me to the doctor & they put it in a splint cast kinda deal that I had to wear for 4 weeks. It was so embarrassing to tell the doctor what I had done to hurt it. And of course he & the nurse started laughing when I told them I had hurt it slugging my hubby. So did everyone else that saw my cast & asked what I had did to hurt it. Cured me, never slugged hubby again :lau

    I took a pic of my office yesterday. I called it a "panorama of despair." It's so upsetting because there's no room to get anything done.

    I saw pics of your setup, looked like you had NICE big raised coops. I know ZIP about wintering chickens. In Mi, we had carpeted boxes in the milk barn. That was it. It seems like a lot of work what ya'll do. I'm thinking out loud...if you added electrolytes (salt) to the water, that would lower the freezing point a few deg. Wonder if that would harm the chickens?
