    I'm looking for a couple of things, but was hoping to find some sort of website that may cover sales, etc. Anyone know of such sites, other sources for used poultry processing equipment?

    I'd check Craigslist - you never know what you'll find.

    Just a suggestion, but I buy a lot of used equipment at the local poultry auctions.

    If you don't know of any near you, you can google for your area.

    A hint though. Prices are usually higher at the first part of the month.

    If you are looking for waterers, make your own from buckets & nipples you can buy online. It was the best thing I have ever done to make my life easier.

    Farmtec or other Poultry suppliers sell them. I bought the type that you pop in after drilling a hole and it has a rubber ring. The chickens learn to drink from them in no time at all.

    I even use them for my chicks at about 5 weeks old. They stay clean and there is less refilling of water. Cuts my "feeding" time in half, at least in the warm months.
