Trying to Keep the Chickens Warm

We’ve received about 6 inches of snow and this has created problems for the chickens. A few of our chickens have a cold. Rick has now closed in the chicken coop area and insulated it. We have put a heat lamp in there and broke down and bought a heated chicken waterer. Is waterer a word? We have looked for ideas to make our own and Rick is hoping to be able to build a diy project to keep the water from freezing in the other chicken coops. If you have an idea please let us know. Videos are coming on the insulated chicken coop. So far the chicken coop is now 20 degrees warmer than the outside temp.
