    These ones... I was at TSC buying feed and my husband wanted them. Probably the best random buy we've had in a while. We bought our bucket at Lowe's and placed it on 6 bricks.

    Mine still haven't figured out how to hit the tab to fill it... Some day they'll figure it out. I think our new ducks will figure it out sooner

    Not only did I buy these, I also put a float valve inside the bucket attached to a hose. Bucket now self fills as well. Won't be good in the winter but I have base heaters I use and they work great too.

    That's a great idea... My bucket is pretty close to the hose and someone is always here to fill it. I'm sure we will do this idea eventually. If only the chickens could fill it themselves

    Ok, this made me laugh out loud, seriously. You need to post videos. :)
