Nope im not paying those prices. I went to walmart and purchased a heated dog bowl for half the price

Its deep enough to where they cant really kick any bedding in it but can still drink from it.

We bought a galvanized 3 gal waterer and heating stand for underneath.
With our winters we also need to keep water from freezing.
I have seen the heated dog bowl waterers, they look very satisfactory.
That's not a bad price for your plastic heated waterer, I hope it works well for you.

I purchased that waterer last fall & used it all last winter. I really like it, and am going to be getting another one this year. It's easy to use, the plug is extremely safe (sort of embeded into the base). I was using a heated dog dish before that, but birds with long wattles dip them into the dog dish and they can then freeze. THIS waterer has a narrow drinking lip, so wattles can't dip into the water & get wet. I put mine up on a cinder block in the coop, and it stayed very clean all winter long.

Think Krisrose has that model. The plastic is very weak, so when she has to turn it over the sides collaspe and water went all over...not fun in winter!!

Here's the same thing only cheaper. It is a hard plastic and one needs to learn to turn it back over after screwing the bottom back on after filling. I would have loved to get these instead of the metal water warmer. But I already have the metal waterers and heaters at a much higher price.

I use metal waterers and built my own heater. I used a large cookie tin (like you get as gifts at christmas) mounted a light fixture in it. Used a 75 watt bulb and it worked great. I also bought an in line thermostat used on water line heating tape for $10.00. Total spent was about $15. I simply place my metal waterer on top of the closed tin and it works great.
