I am ready to send my first chicks out into the coop soon. Living in cold climate and wondering what the best option is. Been reading so much here on BYC- I would really love to try the nipple waterer (not hooked up to water supply) I have only 5 chickens. In freezing temps do you think it would work to make 2 waterers and simply switch them out each day? I dont need a huge 5 gallon pail, I am thinking more like a 1- 2 gallon size, any thoughts? I would keep inside coop for winter, then outside during spring /summer months. Then I wonder if it would be easier to buy a heated water dish, but worry that 7 week old chicks would end up in the bowl and be in big trouble. I thought I found the perfect solution and saw a 3 gallon heated hanging waterer, but then read all the reviews and they were really bad. However this waterer is sold at all major on line chicken supply web sites! Any advice appreciated for 5 chickens, cold weather in an unheated coop.
