Wanted to share this funny picture of our waterer

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Last spring, I made my flock's waterer using a 5 gallon Coleman water cooler and the Brite Tap system with the two nipples on it.  After several months, one of our girls starting roosting on top of it. and naturally, with that came her droppings.  It bothered me no end because when I went to take the top off and add more water, I had to be careful not to let the poop fall into the water.  I knew what I wanted to fix this problem, and about a month ago I found a huge funnel on Amazon.  So, with a little ingenuity, I was able to attach it on top of the lid.

 

So, here's a picture.  No more poop on the lid ;)

 

Started raising chickens in 2013; our flock consists of three two year old hens, Elaine, Charlie, and Mia, and eight adorable twelve week old pullets.  Love our breed variety:  2 RIR, a golden sex link, an Australorp, a barred rock, 2 buff orpingtons, 2 red-laced wyandottes, and 2 Easter eggers.

I am definitely going to be attaching a cone to each of our waterer and feed buckets! It does look funny though :D - Thanks for the pic!

Anyone remember the old cartoon Tom Terrific? Don't remember too much about him, but I DO remember that he had a funnel for a hat....LOL    :lol:
