    Our automatic waterer, it will be hooked up to a 5 gallon bucket, with a hose going to the bucket, We learned that the water pressure needs tobe 6 psi or it dosent work properly, unfortunitly a water gage that can drop psi from 40 to 6 runs about 100$ so we rigged up the bucket method.

    Its all done and looking good, the girls are lovin it, See how the waterer works. We will move the coop every few weeks, and when they get older let them free range during the day.
