Looking for an Automatic Water System for ALL animals

  1. Does anyone use an automatic water system that all their farm animals use? And a way to heat it in the winter would also be GREAT!!!

    I would love a system in which my chickens, dogs, and goats could drink out of. What we are doing now is not working and my Pyrenees keep wanting to play with the chicken's water containers!!! Urggg!
     
  2. Anyone do this?

    Yes, I made one that was fed by a garden hose.. but I did not use it in the winter time.. we have too many days of freezing and down to minus 20 F..

    all you need is a bucket or trough and a float valve..
