I have finally decided to ask! When the temps are wa-ay below freezing for many many days, or weeks, how do wild birds get water? Also, the place where I work every fall has a peacock, 3 sebrights and 5 guineas running free. The peacock and sebrights went through last winter without anybody feeding or watering them. They just free range and are on their own. Well, they made it to this winter and, now, 5 guineas have joined them. I am about to go over there and give them water (hopefully they'll drink some right away before it freezes) but how did the peacock and sebrights make it last winter? And do I really need to worry so much when they're not even mine (but I took care of them during the fall festival and have an emotional attachment to them)? Sorry if this seems like a stupid question but I really DO wonder!
