Snow Angels

We finally had our first snow yesterday. It was a light one that started around noon and ended sometime late last night. I love going outside the morning after a good snow.

I'm not sure what the chickens thought of it. They certainly don't remember what snow was like from last year and their reaction this morning was quite comical. Usually they crowd at the gate when they see us coming, but this morning they remained on their little porch and stared at the snow like children at the edge of a high dive.

Oh yeah, if any of you chicken owners (or non-chicken owners) out there have a swell remedy for keeping the chickens' water from freezing, we are all ears. We've seen warmers designed specifically for this issue, but we're looking for something more on the homemade/inexpensive side. An extension cord can be run for power.
