    I was thinking of making some of the chicken waterers using five gallon buckets and chicken nipples and selling them on Craigslist. Are they patented? Thanks in advance for your help. [​IMG]

    May not be patented but in Farmtek catalog the price is ridiculous! It's like $50 for a clear 5 gallon bucket with lid nipple waterer;-) Funny. I think you'll do pretty good with your idea.
