small hanging waterer

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm new to chickens. Adopted 1 rooster & 3 hens than showed up in my yard 1/1/16. Bought a small coop so not much room. Any clever ideas & suggestions for a small hanging waterer?

Welcome to BYC, you could use a 2 gal. bucket with chicken nipples on it and you can do it inside or out.

You can also use a pvc pipe for the nipple waterers - my chickens don't like them much. But I've heard others have had great success. The PVC pipe is still in my coop with the hope that I can train the next flock!

I have one that's pvc pipe but the cup on it, not a nipple waterer. Like this  http://www.dineachook.com.au/products/Dine-a-Chook-4-Litre-Drinker-%252d-One-Cup.html

 

It's not hanging though, it's attached in the corner of the coop run.  It takes up way less space than the hanging waterer I've got in the other little chook house.

I like that one.

The PVC nipple watererer I have out isn't in their way, that's why I haven't moved it. We have a large run...
