So far the water is staying liquid, and the chickens are drinking to their hearts content.

The chickens hated the snow, but luckily it melted giving me a chance to expand their snow free area by building an “igloo.”

It is plastic sheet held by up conduit quick hoops kindly lent by Seeley Farm.  The chickens loved eating worms while I buried the sides.  Hopefully they will enjoy having a good sized run under the snow.
