    We have an automatic hanging waterer in our coop, it has insulated/heated water line running to it but the water in the bowl freezes now. It can't sit on a heat plate type deal as then the stopper stops the water flow. Any ideas?
    I have a disability and use a wheelchair so am unable to carry water to the coop.
