BriteTap nipple waterer - Page 5
Good to know. I think I will try this. The chickies have LOVED the brite tap! So do I because I don't have to lug water every single day. Honestly, I put it in there in an afternoon and the chickies were drinking out of it within five minutes. I've never looked back!!! Thank you for your idea and your replies! I was going to make a bucket heated waterer instead, but it is easier to do with what I have!
I have one more question. . . did you continue to check the waterer every day during the winter or did you only check it when temps got below a certain number? We are in Logan. We are prepared to take a hot water jug out their daily if we need to. But I was wondering if you found a "sweet spot" for ice to not form?
Thank you! We really only have to refill the water once every four days or so and the food once every few weeks (we keep two feeders in the coop). Our coop is not insulated and their run is covered, and I will put some plastic around some of the edges to keep the draft out on really windy days. I have all the pieces, I'm going to assemble it this weekend! Thank you again for all of your feedback and replies.
