bowl for those girls. They had a chicken heater apparatus which cost almost $50 (yowee) or a heated dog bowl for $19.99. Well, you know which one came home with me - yep, the dog bowl.
It works great - does not heat the water but keeps it from freezing. I checked on the girls this morning and they were in their house and said "no thanks, we're not coming out right now" but their water was not frozen! Yippee! And I went out late afternoon (they were still in their house) and one of the little girls had laid an egg. Yep, even in this cold and their water was fine.
They have plenty of food and water that's not frozen - what more can a chicken ask for?
Yes, the ultimate in gift giving - a chicken swing and it's only $29.99.
No, this is not a joke!
