    I've seen my girls peck at it, not sure if they are eating it. My concern with them taking in too much is to lower their body temp. Same as any other animal. But they also know what's good for them and when to get out of the cold. I would not be concerned, but always to have a clean fresh source of water for them, un frozen.
