This is my first winter with chickens. I live in central Minnesota, and have 14 hens and a rooster. I am getting concerned about the winter watering situation. We have electricity to our coop, but not running water. I currently have a 3 gallon galvanized waterer, which is fine, but not for winter. It is too big to lug into the house and wash in the sink every other day. I would like to find something that is small enough to wash in the sink, won't freeze and doesn't cost a fortune. I was thinking about going with a few of the small animal (like hamster) water bottles, but am worried about the ball freezing. I can't find a one gallon galvanized waterer (then I could just get a heated base). I have been reading on here the pros and cons of heating the coop, and have decided to try the not heating method first--we'll see how it goes!! Please tell me how you have solved your winter watering problems!!
