My Nipples are Frozen...

...on the chicken waterer.

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.

Here 'tis on YouTube.   Frozen Nipples


  1. Apologize for the lateness of my reply. Hope the holidays and the weather are treating you all well.
    That is a great idea for watering the chickens.
    Loved your video. Thanks for sharing it!

    1. Speaking of late replies. Once again, Blogger didn't notify me of a comment. Been out of the whole blogging thing for awhile. Mayhaps, I should get back into it.

    2. Gmail is a brat and they take blogger with them.
      Stay warm! The weather is crazy these next few days!


Thanks for stopping by. I like comments. Let me hear what you have to say.
