    yes you can. go to thrift store and buy a big cookie tin it will fit on. buy a junk lamp or a new lamp switch kit. 40 watt light bulb. I kept a 3 1/2 gallon water on mine and the bulb lasted all winter .

    I've been to the pacific coast regional poultry show twice. Nothing really fancy about it, just A LOT more chickens and breeds than I've ever seen at a county fair. They're all lined up in cages on tables and you are free to walk through and see them up close. When the judges are working in an aisle, it's roped off to foot traffic. Most exhibitors are friendly and will chicken chat and answer questions. Walt (fowlman01 on BYC) even let me hold one of his ko shamo pullets. Felt like I was holding a brick!

    Anyway, if you have the time you should go. Gives you a chance to see how the breeds are really supposed to look, not like the hatchery stock most of us are used to. The only downside is that you will see all those amazing birds and WANT them!


    It's where my son fell in love with Seramas. He got to hold this beauty. We have a few of her cousins!

    That a good plan, I only had the large coop last winter. This winter I have 4 that will need heated dishes. I'll have to check at Goodwill for some.
