So I got a 5 gallon bucket and a plastic planter base and tried to make a waterer for future chickens. I put 2 small holes in the side bottom of the bucket, glued bucket to planter base. Put water in bucket. (basically the set up that is shown on this websites learning center.) My initial thought is that this is not going to work as a waterer. I think a full bucket will "push" the water out and above the height of the planter. Anyone know if I am correct? If so then I will have to drill more, and bigger holes in the bucket and just use it for a feeder. Although now I am thinking that if I use it for a feeder it will be too small for 8 chickens. Anyone have any thoughts on my dilema?
