It's my first winter with chickens, and starting to get cold! (32 last night for me). I have two 3 gallon metal founts- but they are outdoors (in the run- my coop isn't big enough to house them- long story, I thought all my chickens would be one happy family but they didn't end up getting along so I had to divide my run and coop). SO- my question is, the heated fount bases I have seen- can I use those outside? Or, bad idea? My other alternative is getting heated dog water bowls. Thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks in advance! (Also, I'm not super handy so it would probably be better if I bought someone vs made it).
