We are in the process of running a water line just past the henhouse and we are going to put a tap into the coop. There is sufficient space in there to put in a dishwasher that we are taking out of the house (it leaks a little (more of a plumbing issue that needs corrected than a DW issue===don't want it in my kitchen, but would be ok out in the coop area). It would be so convenient to have it in the coop to run waterers and the such through a cycle with just a little bleach or ACV rather than washing them elsewhere. I would discharge the water far away from the coop so the used water wouldn't be near the run or coop. Of course my husband thinks I am over the top. He would have to run electricity to the coop and he really doesn't want to do that. Am I over the top or just getting practical in my old age??????????
