    This looks awesome and we're definitely due for a replacement system. Eagerly awaiting the list! :)

    Sorry I haven't posted a material list yet. Still to come. As far as keeping it from freezing, I agree a fish tank heater may be a good solution depending on your climate. Here in the southeast we have mild winters. I'm hoping that because the water keg is insulated that it will not freeze as easy. I'm not sure yet how to keep the pipe from freezing. If I use pipe insulation I'm afraid my flock will just destroy it.
