    I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a commercialy made solar powered water heater. And if there is where can I get one? With temps dipping in to the below 0 mark every night I have to go out and water the chicken two times a day.

    I don't believe there is a specific chicken model for a solar powered water heater. It would be very expensive if there was I'm guessing. You can try and construct one, but it would probably be more expensive and not very efficient on space. Maybe something will turn up though?
