Vicki, we have sometimes duct-taped “Little Hotties” (little heating pads) to the underside of the feeders during very cold weather. You have to manipulate the pad to get it to produce heat. Maybe you know about them; we use them as hand warmers sometimes.

Good luck!

I know to bring them in, but the temps where I live at least, are going to be pretty harsh. My husband is picking up led strings of lights to try and protect them. Any last minute ideas or tips on keeping them thawed? I’ve always just swapped them out during the day, but can’t do that this week.
