Chicken Freeze Proof Water Supply

The next few days are going to be very cold for here, down to 10 degrees for a while. Now that the electricity is fixed in the coup I can have the electric water heaters in the coup. The ones I have work well keeping the water drinkable but I wish they were better.

img_0169The problem with them is you have to fill them from the bottom which means it has to be flipped up right for use, in the process of doing this you loose about 25% of the water. Not only is it annoying because they need to be filled up more often it makes a frozen mess on the floor. I would love for someone to make one that didn’t make such a mess!

Inside the coup there are incandescent bulbs that have been there since the coup was made, the halogen has been replaced five times and they are on the same amount of time.

Another topic, living rural has other issues too. Sometimes visitors just show up.

Just a stay at home Dad trying to become more self sufficient in a world getting more dependent. It’s easy to get lost in all the things of the world, sometimes the best therapy is getting your hands dirty and growing something good!
