Here are a few quick tips for watering your chickens through the freezing months of winter…
- Give your chickens very warm water when the temps outside are freezing to ensure that they are able to drink as much as possible before the water freezes over.
- If watering using glass containers, make sure that you get the jar warm before adding warm water to it! If the glass is cold when you add the warm water to it… I’m sure you can guess what will happen… a broken glass. Yes, I admit it, I had to learn this the hard way. I had my blonde moment, okay?
- You can also make your own waterers (and feeders) out of plastic buckets!! Check it out HERE, and another one HERE.
Got any other tips to share? I’d love to know how you keep your chickens, or any other animals for that matter, watered through the freezing winter!
