My chickens are constantly getting it muddy, which clogs up the hole that adds more water. You...” --newbie32

Though they had told the previous customer to buy replacement parts online, they exchanged my faulty fount for a new one. I installed the...” --LeslieDJoyce
“ I bought the Do-It-Yourself kit that includes: three nipples, hanging wires, the drill bit, instruction sheet and DVD with even more info. Within an hour of receiving my kit, i had a clean 5-gallon bucket hung in the coop with 2 nipples installed on the bottom (saving the other one to make another container) and the chickens were curiously pecking at the nipple fixtures and quickly figuring...” --red hen in the rain
