    I wanted to have a way to make sure my birds have water all the time in the hot Texas summer and find a way to keep from breaking my back lugging a heavy bucket into the coop. Nifty-Chicken uses the Auto Wata inside his coop and I found one to use in my hoop house. aI'm very happy!

    You can go to any Farm Store and buy just the float, around here
    it would be around $8.00 then find whatever you want to hold the
    water.. I use window planters for my livestock..chickens choose to
    drink out if it, altho they have a water source in their coop

    Wal-mart has those in the pet department.
    They work great for chicks and are easy to clean.

    I use a auto-horse waterer from TSC. I also have a quick cut off valve and disconnect on mine so I can easily disconnect it from the hose for cleaning.
