    Hi,

    I use an aquarium air pump. It works to about 20 degrees and then I switch to a bird bath heater...I have not had any problems and it got to around 10 degrees so far this year.

    Quote:I see that now... [​IMG] They also only hold a quart of water. I thought this might be a cheaper/better alternative to running electricity to 5 coops, but now I'm not so sure.

    I have one, it does work for me so far. But it will freeze at a colder temp as I found out....After getting it and seeing it in person, I think it was too expensive . I could see if it cost 10-15 not 40.00
