Envying Heated Waterers

Not long after we settled in here, ten years ago or so, Cherie told me that now when she sees something on the internet that causes her to become envious, it tends to be things like heated chicken waterers.  Just more evidence that we’d entered a different world.

I do that too.  When I read that someone has a heated chicken waterer, I envy it.

The waterers in our pastures are heated, mercifully. But not the waterers at the chicken coops.

In the heart of winter when I go to let the chickens out in the morning I often find their water frozen solid.

So I have to bust out the ice, or give them water in something else while waiting for the thaw.  It’s not that much work really.

But a heated chicken waterer?  Now that would be nice.
