    I am getting ready to buy feeder and waterer for my chickens-to-be (4 of them). What size do I need, what type should I get? Would love recommendations, opinions etc! Thanks you guys!

    If you want to use apple cider vinegar in anything DO NOT USE GALVANIZED.

    I have 6 gal nipple water system and treadle feeder. They are working great for me. The regular water & feeder does work that well. They require a lot of cleaning and waste lot of feed. If you are using apple cider vinegar, the galvanize will be ruin. You can search one of my post by user name for picture.

    I've looked at the nipple feeders, and i like that. But can someone tell me a bit more about a treadle feeder?
