Thank you for posting your pics....this really helped me for ideas.
I really wanted to catch the rain water for my chickens also, but I have heard that the chemicals from the shingled roof would be in the water. and i have shingles.
I was thinking of adding a filter system but not sure how to get the chemicals out.
So I am thinking If I just use our well water to fill the barrels. (not that my well water would be any better, lots of field run off around here)
I wouldn't have to run/carry so much water.....and they wouldn't run out on hot days. I have 40....36 hens & 4 roo's
