Colder Tonight

23 degrees (F) in the barn, 5 degrees (F) outside. Ice was 2″ thick on the water tubs + building up on the inside of the tubs. Chicken jug was frozen solid. The hens actually put off going to roost for me to give them some liquid water. They were that thirsty. The kittens were making pests of themselves wanting a drink. Put new bulbs in the warming lamps in hopes they will keep the water from freezing solid. Wearing 2 pairs of socks and insulated muck boots, but my toes were getting mighty cold before I was done with chores.
