OK. So this is my first winter with chickens, we were doing pretty good so far for not having our water freeze, but it has finally happened to I really need to find a solution to the problem of keeping them in water all winter.Below are some picture of the current watering system I use, gravity feed buckets into waters. I have 7 pens (one bucket runs 2 pens), But i have two pens that have there own buckets. HOW do i keep all these chickens in water? Do you thinking a heating element in the bucket would keep the water from freezing in the hoses/waters? What about giving snow? Today I made each pen a snowball and they loved it.. but do they not get enough water from that? I dont really want to buy new waters and running the electricity out of each pen would be a pain, plus there isnt a whole lot of extra room in the pens. Any idea's?!
