    Hi I'm new to this forum and have been reading about solutions to the frozen water problems. Is it possible for chickens to get water from snow? I only recentl noticed that the nipples on my waterer are frozen solid so even if the water is OK, the hens aren't getting it. But they seem OK and I wonder if they use the snow in their outside run...?

    Just saw on TV where eating much snow for the water can kill some big deer-like animal, I forget, maybe a buffalo. So it can't be good for a chicken.
