We built a coop with a nice size run attached to it. The chickens seem very happy. Anyways, this is out first year having chickens so we're a bit unsure what to do for winter. We lined both the [insulated] coop plus the floor of the run with straw and we close the flock in to the "warm coop area" for the night and open it in the morning.... The main issue is what to do with the water. So far, every time it freezes, we just pour hot water into their waterer to melt the ice... it's only a temporary solution. Currently we put the waterer into the coup area with them (since it's so much warmer in there), but that's taking up lots of their room... Is there anyway to keep the water from freezing without having to run electricity out there? Any suggests/advice/thoughts would be very much appreciated. Thank you all in advance.
