OK, we didn't get our barn built last summer so the ducks and chickens are living in pens in a huge garage and seem pretty darn happy. They go out to free range when someone is home. Two of the walls adjoining the house are connected to heated rooms and even with a window open at the top for ventilation they are pretty comfortable. This afternoon it is 22 here and the wind is howling. When I let them out, then proceeded to try to scrape and clean the pen I realized I can't budge anything. The poo is mixed in with their spilled water and is frozen solid. First time this has happened. All I can do is fluff their hay and refill the water but the poo ice has to stay until it gets warmer. Ughh... I can't imagine what two or three days of poo ice is going to be like to clean. Anyone else have this problem?
