I hate to say it, but I suppose it’s time to put away my rain barrel for the season.
If there’s one thing that makes having chickens easier… it’s not having to haul them water every day! With the smidgen of rain that we get in Wyoming… my rain barrel off the coop roof was more than enough to water them, and the cat, and other birds, and the dogs as they ran by! In fact, I had connected another barrel to it because the 55 gallon would fill up and just out of curiousity, I wondered how much more I could get off that tiny roof! Another 40 gallons appeared… but, of course, I just let it drain away since I rarely, if ever, used the 55 gallons up!
As it’s starting to freeze… and hard freezes at night… the other night it was down to 0˚!
I had to pull the plug before all my fittings froze and cracked…
It’s back to hauling jugs of water…
