    I am wondering what you guys think, I saw one at the feed store. I believe they are for horses but they are not very big they come in different sizes. It gets very hot here and I get worried about my flock running out of water.

    I use an automatic dog waterer, it's nailed up in my chicken coop and connected to the hose.. I love it.[​IMG]

    Same here. I think got it at a feed store, I screwed it to the wall. I had to put chicken wire over the top (at a slant) to keep them from sitting on top and pooping in it. It works great when its not freezing. The best thing I ever did was run water and electricity to the hen house. franko
