DIY chicken (poultry) water warmer. Made from a clay pot, clamp light with a 60 watt bulb and a piece of tile. The water container is also strapped to the ceiling so it doesn’t accidentally get knocked or blown over.
Last week I added security lighting to the coop. It will also come in handy in I need to check on things at night. Since the light runs of batteries there are pretty much no limits on where we move the tractor to in the yard.
The light has several (3) setting – when to come on, motion sensitivity, and how long to stay on once motion is detected. So far it’s worked great! Thank you Harbour Freight!
Also, we are now getting about four eggs a day!
Chicken Tractor Build is done! We started this adventure on Labor Day and worked on it pretty much on weekends and occasionally during the weeks.
Next, chickens! No roosters though. Stay tuned!
If you want to see more from the build I have an album of photos here: Chicken Tractor Build 2015
Are you are interested in how I came up with the design? It’s based on the Kerr Center Chicken Tractor design, but I did make several modifications along the way. http://kerrcenter.com/publication/kerr-center-chicken-tractor-1-0-description-parts-list/
