I just ordered this bucket waterer on Amazon because the reviews were incredible and it seems less messy than other waterers. The problem is, I will definitely need a heater to keep it un-frozen in the winter. Does anyone have any favorites they recommend and how they work?

Also, I bought this feeder by the same brand below. If anyone has used these before, let me know what you think of them! Thanks!

on the waterer you can use 250-watt mini stock tank heaters, other members here have used them successfully.

those types of waterer & feeder are great, easy to make for fraction of the price you bought them for, instructions to make them are in DIY threads here.
