leaking waterer in coop
I am having my two gallon waterer overflow in my coop. It is a galvanized model where the one half slides over the other half and creates a vacuum inside. I take it this means that the waterer has a leak and is losing its vacuum. It takes a couple hours to start overflowing. Has anyone ever had luck patching these? I can't see the leak spot even when I invert the lid and fill it. Can silicone be used or something different? I didn't know if it would be risky to use such a material for the birds or the eggs that they lay for us. Any other ideas? The waterer is less than 6 months old, but it has been real cold here in Michigan. Maybe this is normal? Please advise on sealing material.
