A crock of water

"I thought you guys had two chicken tractors? How can you make one Ice and Easy serve both tractors?"

I have not figured out a way to do that, but an alternative to the Ice and Easy might be a simple Crock Pot.

I tried it last night in the other tractor and it worked fine. It seems that if you keep the cover off and the setting on low the water stays close to luke warm. Be sure to switch it off during the day if it gets hotter than 40. Our hens even seemed to enjoy the warm water in the morning, but that could be just my imagination.
