Homemade heated chicken waterer
Sick of leaving
your flock thirsty on cold winter mornings and breaking ice out of
traditional chicken waterers? The newest edition of our do it yourself
chicken waterer kit comes with six pages of additional instructions
to help you build the perfect heated chicken waterer for your coop.
Our customers churned up a lot of great
ideas last year in response to our photo contest, and my favorite
homemade heated chicken waterer is shown here. Lu Ann and
Christian Shank designed this waterer together,
sandwiching heat tape between two buckets. The great part about
this design is that the outer bucket acts as a lip that protects the
nipples, allowing you to set your waterer on the ground as you fill
it. Our kit provides step by step instructions for replicating
their success using around $26 of additional parts.
