    Dh and I go to yard sells when we get off work on Friday mornings. This week we decided not to then we had to kill time waiting for the bank to open so off we go to the barn sale. As soon as I got out of the truck I saw what I thought was a chicken waterer. Go to look sure nuf waterer. They had $10 on it. We were the first people of the day so I thought no bargining yet BUT I said hey would you take $8 for the chicken water thing. He said yes so fast I couldn't beleive it. He said he has had it in his last few sells any nobody even knew what it was let alone wanted it

    Here it is am guessing it is a 10 gallon one


    it is in real good shape no rusy still need to clean it up for the girls to use

    Looks like an eight gallon waterer. You can still find new ones once in a while. Works great so long as you can fill it in place otherwise it's going to be heavy.
