Nights are getting colder often into the freezing temperatures. Our chickens need water. We need an easy solution to keep their water from freezing.

Today we came up with a $2.00 plan.

Take a cookie tin.

Drill a hole in the side of the tin.

Install one light bulb and replace the lid. Place the chicken water container on the cookie tin, turn on the light and the heat from the light bulb should keep the water from freezing.

I'll post more pictures once we have it installed and working.

Any suggestions?
