    I have a heated dog bowl for water and normally keep it outside the coop however the last few figid days ( its been between 3 and 10 degrees) my chickens have hardly left their coop. I worry they aren't getting enough water however I don't want to much humidity in the coop or water spills. Where to put my water in the winter?

    IMO, if they know where the water usually is and they don't have to walk through snow to get there, they'll find it. Leave it where it usually is.
