    That's really cool! Now figure out how to keep it from freezing in the winter! That's my latest project cuz I don't like to be cold and wet!

    Quote::-( I don't think freezing is going to be an issue here in Northern California, but even if it is I still keep a 1 gallon waterer in their cozy coop.
