    Hi All,

    New chicken Mom here! Just looking to hear what your preferred winter water set up is? I'm from Minnesota and looking to see what has worked for all of you.
    Also, any special treats or ideas to keep the chickens entertained during long cold winters?
    Excited to hear! :D

    Executed to hear? :p. Bet you got auto-corrected!
    I put an electric tank de-icer in my waterer and it does the job. As far as treats I give them a little extra scratch. They also love the insides of acorn and butternut squash, pumpkins, etc. another great winter time treat is black oil sunflower seeds.
