Heated chicken waterer winter update

wraping a chicken waterer with reflectix


Our 
do it yourself heated chicken waterer froze up the other night.

It did fine earlier in the month when it got down to 16 degrees, but it would seem like somewhere around 10 is the "too cold" point.





Instead of increasing the length of the electric pipe heater we decided to wrap it with Reflectix.


Maybe we'll get lucky and have to wait till next winter to fully test out this new generation of diy heated chicken waterers.
