I think this waterer is great. It only holds 2 gallons of water so if you're a younger, older or out of shape it's not too much work to carry from the hose to the coop. It's it's very easy to fill...

I am in Barbourville, about an hour and a half from Lexington. We got about 3 inches of snow, but other nearby areas got upwards of 4-6". I too am dreading this winter storm coming in the next few days. Luckily my nursing classes were cancelled and I don't have to work again until Sunday, but my husband is going to have to work late today so it's looking like I have to feed this evening. Not an easy task when you have roughly 200+ head of chickens, and only 2 out of those are free ranging hens we haven't caught up yet. The majority of our birds are American Games so they have to be individually penned, 1 rooster to 1-2 hens. Extra stags/cocks that are not used for breeding are kept tethered by leg hitches/cords to individual barrels so feeding them takes a while, and will be worse in the snow. Spring cannot come soon enough!
