    For four chickens, I would buy the Premier 1 heated nipple bucket. $54, but just plug it in and go.

    This has worked well for me and uses the same waterer year round. Under $20
    I use this:

    Fully chicken approved !!
    Keep submerged although I believe it has a built in safety. I plug into a Thermo Cube which comes on at 35° and shuts off at 45°

    If you have a true solar setup with solar panels and good battery and all, you could likely power a heated dog bowl, that uses 25-60 watts, thru the night, then charge during the day. Depending on your setup.
