    I can't count how many bucket handles that have broken over time with the weight of the water. My Hubby finally got tired of me complaining and made this custom stand! It is very sturdy and looks great! It matches the line of custom coops that he has started building. I found 3 gallon tight head containers. They work great! 12" from the ground to the bottom of the bucket.

    where did you get your containters? I have been look for some like the ones you have that are round but are made of clear plastic. Can you see the water level in your containers from the outside of the container without trying too hard? Can the nipple waterers be used in the bottom of a 5 gal water bottle that are used for office type water dispensers? Please let me know. Thanks :)
