Hello! My first 10 chicks are "due" on April 20th and I should have them on the 22nd!!! Can't wait. We are trying to make our coop solar powered. I have the chicken door and the light figured out. Now, I just have to figure out the waterer. I live in Northern Wisconsin and would need the heater to run for anywhere from November through March (depending on the winter). Does anyone have any experience with this? I have found some threads on success with the lower wattage aquarium heaters, so that seems to be the way to go. Just trying to avoid running an extension cord 100 feet through the snow!!! Thank you!
