So i got chickens this year in the spring while it was still cool, but definitely above freezing. We are now heading into fall and i am thinking about winter. While i am not heating my coop (it is well insulated and i have read many many articles on the pros and cons of heating) this winter, I would like to heat the water so that i do not have to lug water back and forth from the coop every day in the snow and dump buckets full of ice out ever night. I have looked and seen heated water buckets with the trough at the bottom that are just a heated variety of the ones i use now. I have also found open bowls that are heated. Both are electric. Both have received mixed reviews on Amazon. I am wondering if anyone has used either or both and what your thoughts are and which anyone would recommend trying. Thanks all!!!
