I don't have one, and had considered making one. I found some great instructions to make one that's homemade.  What I decided to do that has worked like a champ is to use an old crockpot.  Yes....an old crockpot to keep my chickens water warm / room temp in these winter months.  It's awesome and has worked beautifully!! Hope you find something that works for you. I wasn't willing nor could I afford the chunck of change required for a water heater.

This is what we made. Used a 25 watt bulb. I set/hang the waterer over it and it works perfectly, keeping water from freezing inside coop.

Um,yah good concept..bad approach....CHEAP,yes..SAFE dont think so... This needs some safety steps added and a few things changed...He didn't us a out door extension cord and the wood could catch on fire not to mention they could knock over the water container...SCARY!!!!
