Farmcycling Project – Chicken Water Heater
Though the winter is setting in reluctantly, we have had a few cold nights where the chicken’s water iced up. A quick check at the feed store, Tractor Supply, and Amazon found chicken waterers like this: Unfortunately, the cost of one of these babies is between $40 and $50. That’s a lot of chicken feed! So, to the farm cycling pile I went for inspiration. Materials I discovered were already on hand: Old cookie tin, incandescent lightbulb, silicone sealer, electrical tape.
