    I have a 3ft by 5ft coop. I am looking for a small waterer to keep in the coop and possible a heated one. All I find are 3 gallon size and that is bigger then I would like. Also, does anyone keep a small feeder in the coop as well? I am looking for possible ideas.
    Thanks in advance!

    I am looking for a one gallon or less. The three gallon is way too big to keep in my 3ft by 5ft coop and would interfere with the roost bar.

    My husband and I make feeders and drinkers specifically for coops such as yours. We're designing a solar powered heated one but it's not ready for retail yet. For my small polish coop I use our round bottle with the horizontal nipple. I set it on a seedling heat mat on top of a cinder block. It never froze last year even at below zero temps. The round bottle is BPA free.
