    We have had water brought out to our shed/coop. However we turn the water off in winter to prevent freezing. Does anyone have one of those hose adapters which will warm water?

    More info needed:
    How is 'water brought out to our shed/coop'......
    .....an underground pipe buried below the freeze depth, a garden hose???

    There are stand pipe valves that shut the water off at the supply pipe buried below frost depth and somehow drain the part exposed to freezing temps.

    Do you have power in your coop?
    I have a heated waterer in the coop and just carry a gallon out each morning to top it off.
