Hi, I've seen waterers that were from a 5 gallon waterer but I'm wondering if anyone has redirected their downspout to fill the waterer? I'm from Oregon and we get a lot of rain and I use my down spouts to fill all my horses water troughs from Fall to Spring and it works great. But I'm trying to figure out a design to use the down spout somehow inside the chicken coop. My father wants to have his running inside his coop then out again so they can get fresh water, but I think it needs some kind of bowl or trough for when the rain stops (it does stop here in Oregon SOMETIMES!). I would love to figure this out for inside my horse barn as well... sort of a bucket with a downspout going in then another overflow spout to dump the excess water?? Does anyone understand what I'm thinking here?? Seen any pictures of someone doing this? I'd love to see it so I can give my hubby a picture of my idea!
