Coop feed and waterer help?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So i have some rabbit waterers and normal Chicken waterers, but my buff Orpingtons don't like either(one has trouble with them so I use a dog bowl or bucket for her). I've been wanting to do something with pvs pipes that some have on Pinterest. I'm a newby at this so all help would be appreciated. I have three 4x8/10 coops and two small coops. 39 chickens in all(surprised at my first try of incubating eggs.) Thanks for all the information

One of my Chanteclers wouldn't use the chicken waterer. After a day that I didn't leave her out a bucket she figured it out.
If by pipes you mean nipple waterers I've heard they work great

She knows how, but she struggles with it. She can only get so much out of it. She can't figure out to put her whole beak in and just puts her top beak in and scrabbled to get the drops out. sad.png

I use a sled for my chickens also, most of my girls use that rather then the actual waterer

I would love to see a picture of that. I have seen stuff with pvc pipes that look cool, but I know there's different Angles and if you do it wrong it won't work.

it's so clean! My chickens love standing in their water/feed bowls. Some even sleep in them if I use the bowls. It's crazy haha
