    If you have troubles with your chooks sitting on top of your waterer and pooping down the sides, into the water, then try this: get a big funnel from the dollar store or auto supply store and tie it on to the top - think of it as a big pokey hat. works like a charm!

    Now if I could only figure out how to keep the heated dog bowl I use in the winter clean and free of debris!

    The funnel is a wonderful idea. As for the bowl, try putting it on top of a concrete block, that will raise it up enough to keep most of the bedding, etc, out of it. I don't have the bowl, but this is what I have to do with all waterers I put inside the coop.
