Great duck waterer
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
This looks fantastic for my coup! My ducks can't clog it up with things they don't have access to. No rocks or sticks inside their coop (for night time only anyway) and they have to step up to drink (we have drop tray thing). Thanks for posting this! This sure would be easier than the 6 waterers my kids have to rinse wash and refile 2 times a day.
I'm using a horse auto waterer in their house at night. Nice deep bowl to dunk their heads in, attaches to the wall, and is very durable.
I wish I didn't need to. In the winter maybe I won't but our summers are 100-115 degrees and even at dark there is a lot of residual heat and my poor Pekins especially pant like mad even if it's 90 outside after sunset. Even at 9pm it is quite warm here. I read that in warm temps like that I would need to keep water in their coop. Am I mistaken? Will they be ok for 12 hours without food or water in hot temps like this overnight?
