    I hate dealing with water in cold weather too. These buckets http://www.tractorsupply.com/fortex-calf-mate-calf-feeder-2-gal-capacity-black-2171247 help a lot. Right now I don't have electric out at my chicken area, so I have to make do.

    These buckets might be too big for bantams, but are perfect for ducks, turkeys and large fowl. They flex, so you can break the top ice crust with a well-aimed boot heel. If they end up being partially frozen, but too hard to break the crust, just turn them over and stomp on the bottom to knock the ice loose. Helps relieve the frustration of having to mess with ice, lol. Cussing is optional, but seems to improve my aim. If they get waaaay to hard frozen, turn them over and let them sit in a sunny spot for the rest of the day. The ice will come out in a big chunk that can be used for igloo building. Not really, but I always end up with multiple bucket-shaped ice blocks around my chicken yard, and they make me think of igloos. I guess I'm easily entertained. [​IMG]

    Saturday, my D'Uccle hen pooped a disgusting pile of round worms out right in front of me (Thank God, I guess). My local feed store is The Mill, so I got on line, did research, and decided I wanted the Ivermectin Pour On. Ran to the store that was about to close for the weekend, grabbed the Ivermectin, got home and realized I had bought the Oral Sheep Drench. So, the poor chickens had to wait the weekend. Yesterday I went back and they didn't have what I wanted, but had the Wazine, so I grabbed that. I had to start today because I felt bad that they had to wait this long.
