    Frozen the last 4 mornings here. California foothills. My ducks yell at me until I break the ice on their pond.

    My ducks, goose, turkey, chickens and even the goats eat 22% layer pellets. They all free range together. They get kitchen scraps and treats. I haven't had anybisdyes with any of them. Now the goat people will ho crazy to hear me say that but they would leave their food for the birds do I stopped buying it. Their have free choice hay. I have the healthiest goats around so I do what works. I used to panic, but gave up and let them eat what they want. I don't leave feed out free choice so they can't founder their selves on it.

    I had to start feeding the cats before I turn the other animals out and after I lock them up. They got chased away by the ducks.

    Good grief I just checked the forecast. Its supposed to be 5* Wednesday night and 28* tonight. Glad we got out and enjoyed the sunshine today. All that mud will be frozen. Now is not when I enjoy my feather legged bantam.
