Frozen Glugs/Water - read and post it here!

Recommended Posts

Thought I had posted that Omlet now stock the heating pads, but can't find it :roll:

I now have one and it's great, the other one I had, didn't have a removable plug, so I had to cut the lead to get it through the mesh :roll:

 

I just worry when I am away in case the one heater fails, at least now I have two. My neighbours do pop in on the hens when I'm away, but this gives me extra peace of mind.

Just to add what we did last winter, which was to rotate between two glug trays each day.

 

Each morning we would take the frozen one out, replace it with a freshly-filled "spare".

 

Worked OK last winter, but I suppose this only works if/when the water only freezes overnight and not during the day.
