    No worries- I have to say water freezing is a problem I never have here! lol
    (Though it did get to -4 C one morning a few years ago- a bit of ice on the stock trough)

    About 60 at the moment. I have Aruacana, Barred Plymouth Rock, Bantam White Leghorns, and some layers that are mainly Isa Brown crosses.
    I never give my chooks names!
