    During the last hot spell 90+ my neighbors gave my son their plastic wading pool.
    Cody filled the pool w/water about 6" deep, came inside to put his swimming suit on, and you guessed it, he came out to find he wouldn't be wading alone, 3 BBB were standing in the pool like a flamingos, water up to their rumps, Having a ball.... If your birds get warm tootsies this summer the pool thing seems to work.[​IMG]
  2. Ours do that to, we have pools set out for the geese and ducks and the turkeys get in them to. It's supposed to be right at 100 today here, I hope there is room for me this afternoon. lol

    hahaha....that is funny!!!!

    yesterday I went outside o move the play equipment off the front lawn and I found a martin in my son's wading pool. it had filled up about half way with rain water and I guess the martin was too lazy to keep going to the creek!! I had to drain the pool and disinfect it. Though my son just wanted to watch the little one swim. They are cute from a distance!!! lol

    Our Turkeys are 3 mos old and all love the pool
    Our chickens will sit on the side of the pool and drink, but not to crazy about wading yet.

    This picture is a few years old. I put Floyd into the pool and he hopped out quicker than a wink, he wanted no part of that water. Yesterday I was sprinkling the lawn and he walked into the stream by accident, he booked to get out from the sprinkler path, I haven't seen the old bird move so fast in a while!

    I'm thinking he doesn't like water.
