The temp is now freezing and another month temps will be -30. I have been using a heat lamp to keep water from freezing for the ducks and turkeys and it is just working, but when it gets -30 I don't think even a heat lamp will keep the water from freezing. I read somewhere (maybe on here) about giving turkeys powder snow rather than water. To see what would happen I took out their water today and put in a bucket of snow.. after a while they started eating the snow. Does anyone else do this? It seems to work but I am worried that they get the amount of water they need since it takes many buckets of snow to make one bucket of water. Its a bad time of year to go out and buy a couple of heated water buckets for the ducks and turkeys, money is tight right now with the holidays.
