I'd like Michigan then...I'm not much for the sun. I like dark days.
Except when it's cold like we are...then it's nice to see the sun.
Are you thinking of trying this idea? I'm asking because you said "yet"
I didn't do this with my horses, 98% of their trough froze over with a heater.
My chickens aren't allowed out, so my water's inside. As it is the back of my heated waterer is iced a bit. And I have some really tiny chickens, if they got pushed in (which I can see happening with the big oafs I have with them) they'd freeze to death.
