Chook Sauna

Mom has been having problems with the Chooks’ water freezing. Her solution was to get an old crock pot and use that to keep the water liquid. The chickens think this is wonderful, but primarily because they can use it like a sauna, perching on the rim and warming their butts. This means that they poop in the water but that is apparently a small price to pay for the feel of gentle warmth on their feathery little butts. On the other hand, it means pulling in and cleaning the crock pot every evening (which Mom rationalizes by saying she wouldn’t want to leave it plugged in overnight).

P.S. It turns out the chickens do no like the snow.
