The weather's not been unusually cold. However, a couple of times, it's been cold enough to freeze my nipples. Ya see, I changed waterers for cleanliness and convenience. Well, during the winter it's always challenging. Run water, at least, twice a day. That means keeping a spare waterer to fill and replace the old frozen one. With this new watering device I've decided to drain the water on those extra cold nights. Still, my nipples freeze. Nothing that a splash of water won't cure, though.
My new waterer works well. It holds about 2 1/2 gallons. There's another pipe connected, with an elbow, to the left that runs vertically. My picture skills from ground level missed it.
Even though there was frost on the pumpkin this morning, my nipples were not frozen. I must've figured out how to totally drain it. Time will tell.
Shot a short video of the birds coming out of the coop, but Blogger says it's too much for them to upload.
