While I've always felt bad for all you in the frozen north, I now understand on a small scale what you have to deal with everyday! Yesterday the waterers were all frozen solid...as well as the outside faucets, even though they were insulated and left slightly running all night. The temp was around 19 on Sunday night and didn't reach much above 35 yesterday. Last night it was 16 degrees here in sunny north central Florida and of course, they are frozen solid again!! AAAGGGHHHH!!! I guess the biggest issue is that we don't have all the available items, like heated dog bowls, etc that are available in colder climates. Oh well...only 2 more nights in the 20's and it will be warming up again. The chickens don't seem to mind the cold at all. We did hang a 250 watt red heat bulb in each pen and the silkies make piles underneath it.
