In the Brooder
- Feb 6, 2018
I live about an hour outside of Philadelphia and we just got ducks this spring. I thought I had planned for everything but never even thought about the hose freezing in the winter time. Looks like they sell heated hoses but that makes me kind of nervous. I can fill the buckets in my kitchen sink if I have to for the time being. We were hoping to go away for a few days and have a neighbor who has watched them for us before but without a hose I don't know how he could give them water. I can't expect him to haul buckets into his house then all the way back. I was thinking of getting a really short hose and unhooking it and draining it after each use. Would that work?
