    not really for you northern folks, because I can see all kinds of freeze issue.

    has anyone tried one of these hook to your water hose?

    I know I can come up with something to keep them from sitting on or pooping in the water, was just curious about pro's and con's.

    I bought one from Amazon with a cover to keep it clean, and it works great. I bought a white water hose and pipe insulation to put over the hose to keep from freezing and over heating. My girls love it. Just be sure that the chickens are big enough to drink out of it without drowning.
