    Years ago - actually about 20! - I had the best waterer - a round metal pan about 18" in diameter with a 'lid' of spokes that came together at the top - like a tepee, which clipped on and came off for cleaning and filling. Has anyone seen one like this? My plastic waterer needs two hands and my feet to screw the top back on after filling and I hate it. Any other ingenious watering systems (for 6 chickens)?
    Thanks. Am loving having some "girls" around again.

    Why not try making a nipple waterer? Easy to make and so much cleaner! Check out my page for deets. Good luck!

    I just use a plastic 1 gallon feed bowl. Works great. I got a heated one for winter. I have 15 chickens. No one spills it or poops in it. [​IMG]
