Water bottles. Which are a PAIN to thaw. I ended up having multiple extras in the house to just sap out. But the metal spout's froze quickly. So we switched to bowls that attach to the wire, way easier to thaw, but I'm still giving the heated bowls a go so they never freeze.What have you used in the past? I saw a few pet fountains but the reviews were awful.
---dear i hop,-WOW,if you somehow keep the environment warm-could be your best bet,,however-FIRE-and burns could be the biggest factor with any decision made-. you have to be very concerned when critters are kept in the cold..not just the water freezing..-not healthy..i use temperature sensors for everything-indoors/outdoors..and cameras--even then there are problems-usually minor--this might sound expensive,but it isnot--just have to be creative,within reason..i knew someone who used a old insulated trailor-and a space heater,-secured it and protected it from the critters.-temp.s would get to say below freezing and temp in the trailor would be 55 degrees--I have a 8ft-2x2ft.cage-which I cover with 4 mil plastic-for my 3 pigeons,and have a heater set to 55 degrees,it works very well and keeps them warm.i hope something here helps -every situation is different,sincerely james waller for joseph r cottontail-ripHey everyone,
For those who keep their buns outside, how do you keep water from freezing?
