    was looking for a way to keep water heated with out dragging cords out to all 5 pens :hmm
    so i found this 3 places sell em at diffrent prices.2 diffrent kind or could just be color.

    Found thier web site: http://www.solarsippers.com/store.html

    So
    what do you think?On average we stay in the 20's here but it does get a littke colder some times and then i could just check water alot.Im not sure if the chickens could reach the water.

    If you have something better post it here.....

    Those look very small. I don't think they will support enough water for a chicken.
