What do you think of this feeder and waterer? Also... heater?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I just ordered this bucket waterer on Amazon because the reviews were incredible and it seems less messy than other waterers.  The problem is, I will definitely need a heater to keep it un-frozen in the winter.  Does anyone have any favorites they recommend and how they work?

Also, I bought this feeder by the same brand below.  If anyone has used these before, let me know what you think of them!  Thanks!

:welcome   on the waterer you can use 250-watt mini stock tank heaters, other members here have used them successfully.

those types of waterer & feeder are great, easy to make for fraction of the price you bought them for, instructions to make them are in DIY threads here.
