WelcometoBYC.gif . They make special water heaters for poultry waterers. You can probably find them at a feed store

At most pet shops, WalMart and other places, in fall, they will also sell large, dog watering dishes that are heated.  I really like these.  I just set an old ice cream bucket (hey, they're free!!) and set the little bucket in the dog dish.  Works wonderfully.   Have a couple pails and no messy with waterers in freezing temps.  Just swap out the old pail for the fresh one.
