Thank you for this, I am going to make one of the feeders this weekend. Also I am going to make a 5 gallon waterer but I am going to use chicken nipples.

How did you suspend the nipples 4 feet below the bucket? I would love to see a picture of how you made yours before I start my projects.

I would love to see it also.
I just remember reading about someone having an issue with the nipples leaking.
They attributed it to the pressure of the water in a full 5 gallon bucket.

I have a PVC pipe coming off my 5 gal waterer that holds the water nipples. No leaks and it works great. I love not having to change the water twice a day and I am sure the hens love clean water.
