    Automatic Chicken Water 2 Cup line - (As seen in picture)
    Requires no electrical equipment or connection to faucet pressure.
    Connect to a bucket to have a natural pressure watering system <5psi. (bucket not included)



    The easiest way to water your chickens.
    They drink from the cup, which allows the right amount of water to come into the cup.
    The chicken waterer for sale is a two cup system.

    PM with questions.

    Love the idea. Am I seeing pipe insulation around the pipe in the picture above? Do you have more information on this product--instructions, materials required for building/assembling your watering system. Does this do pretty well at avoiding water-drippy mud puddles below the nipples? I'm also wondering about winter-time freezing. Are you able to keep it going through the winter, or do you switch over to a different watering system in the freezing months? and where are these water cup/nipple products available?

    haha--didn't see the link to the product before. :D

    I built a system with a 5 gallon bucket, thinking the water would last a few days and it gets pretty nasty inside the bucket. Is there something to put in the water to keep it clean and clear. Also think that there are some leaks I have to fix as the bucket drains super fast and I only have 18 chickens.

    Keep the lid on the bucket and it will be a contained system that should not grow anything and stay clean. Since water is only released form the cups when chickens drink, there is no backflow so there is no reason it should get dirty in the line or bucket. I only clean my bucket every few months.

    How do you keep it from freezing in the winter?
