Ok, we have 9 RIR 8 week old poop machines. We recently moved them to the coop. My issue now is figuring out a water system. I think a gravity system would work best for us but can not realy hang a 5 gallon bucket in the coop due to space restrictions. I have been reading a lot about the nipples and cups. I have a list of questions I need help with. Our coop has and attached covered run area. The birds are only locked up at night in the coop. 1) can I use the nipples with a 5 gallon bucket as the reservoir and a piece of pvc pipe with the nipple threaded into the pipe? The pipe would be along a wall of the coop. 2) those who use a similar set up, what do you use in the winter? I live in central PA and we can get some long cold spells 3) Should I have this set up in the coop or the run Please, any and all recommendations would be appreciated. Trying to make the water set up as clean for the birds as possible and as maintenance free for us as possible. Would like it to be simple so that someone looking after the birds while we are away do not become overwhelmed with chicken care instructions. We currently have a 3 gallon water that sits on some bricks in the coop and the run but as you are surely aware that creates a lot of nasty water cleaning every day. Thanks for any tips in advance.
