    I thought you could buy hanging waterers but I haven't found any.One is listed as hanging,but it's actually a handle for transporting.
    Do you hand waterers?

    Go to the BYC store and you'll find some hanging waterers.

    I use 3 gallon heated waterers that hang. They work great. It's been down to 8 degrees a couple of nights and I haven't had any problems at all. Having the waterer hang keeps it cleaner plus it's above the snow. The best price I've found is from www.cutlersupply.com $34.90

    Some of mine are hung (in the coop that is on a slope - have to hang em) but the big one - 5 gallon - is on a concrete block/stepping stone.

    I prefer to hang them, keeps them cleaner.

    I wish that I could hang mine, but I can't unless I was to do it in the coop its self. I would rather it not be in there though. I tried building a little wooden fixture to hang it on in the field, and the idea was great, but it turned into a perch for the chickens and the water was worse then it was before because of the amount of "poo" that made it down.
