I had this idea that I could put gutters on our coops and collect the water in rain barrels and use it to water the chickens. I really don't want to carry a million gallons of water out there. I'm also going to try to use it up here around the house for my flowers. I'm going to have to run an extra pipe from the house out to where the gardens and corn are going to be. I really don't want to run hoses every where because it's going to be a pain to move when we use the tractor or mow. Plus I don't want to drain our well. I don't see a problem with using rain barrels for the chickens water. Anyone else do this?
