    I need a new feeder and waterer. What is the best online supplies website? Also, any recommendations as to a good feeder and waterer for about 12 birds?
    Thanks.

    I purchased 10 of the nipple screw in water tips from ebay. I think the name of the site was Coopsnmore? I just did a search for chicken water nipples and went with the best price with free s/h I got them for under $19.00. Shipping was fast and I followed directions on the site for how to use them and how many to order to # of chickens. However when making - The first hole I drilled with correct bit size cracked my Lowes bucket a little so, I then used a very thin drill bit and gradually used bigger bits to get to correct size for rest of holes. Use plenty of marine type caulk and plumbing tape and wait 24 hrs to fill w/water and your good to go. I put them up at head height and my chickens required no training to use them. I have a large plastic hanging feeder from TSC - All work well for me and my flock of 20 [​IMG]
