    Well, I am really wondering how I am going to water my 30 plus roosters this winter. I have some fly tying stock that I am wondering how I am going to water. They are all in individual pens. I am thinking about using some PVC with a stock heater below the pump and pumping the water through the PVC through the 30 pens.

    Let me be a more clear.
    I am thinking about using a 55 gallon plastic barrel.
    Putting a pump and a stock heater in the barrel.
    Connecting PVC pipe to the pump and pumping the heated water out to the birds and returning teh water back to the barrel. Do you all think this will work? If not what kind of advice could you all give me? Any and all advice and ideas are welcome
