First off let me state that I own quail. I think you chicken people will have more experience with this issue though, thats why I am asking here. Normally I use a 1 gallon hanging chicken waterer in the summer months but since the temps are now getting into the low 30s at night I have started looking into heated options. I just bought a small heated dog bowl to heat my quail waterer. Here is my setup.... Is this bowl going to be OK sitting in the coop on pine shavings?? I am not really sure how hot these get and couldn't find it in a search. I can not raise it up on blocks because I don't think they will reach it and they do not like nipple waterers. I could put it on the wire mesh portion as shown below but was hoping to keep it inside. A picture from summer showing the entire coop... Anyone have any experience??
