    I was wondering if these cups have the float valves in them? [​IMG]

    no they are like nipple waters where they chicken taps the metal part and the cup fills up with water. We do have one simular to a float valive but they do not work as well becasue they don't seem to last as long and more likely to overflow and make a mess.

    Quote:the total one would be 60 dollers without a bucket + shipping. If i were to ship it with a bucket it would cost more but it can be done. (depending on bucket size) Pretty much all the 60 doller+ shipping would need is some waterproof caulk, bucket, hammer and somethign to cut a small hole in the bucket. (drill etc.) all you have to do is cut a hole smaller than the adapter i send and then hammer it in for a snug fit/ then take the waterproof caulk and put it around the adapter so that its totally waterproof.

    I'm not exctly sure what the horse waters are but pretty much the chicken jsut taps the metal section in the middle and water comes out and they can drink it out of the bowl. My chickens used my test model and it only took them a few mins till they started using it. we just showed them there was water in it and they went to town. but I kept a fountain in there to make sure none of them went without water but they actually prefereed the cups to the fountain.

    Would you please post a pic of the entire set-up? I am having a difficult time visualizing the watering system.
