What does everyone who uses a 5 gallon bucket with nipples in the bottom of it do for a lid? Maybe it is just mine, but my bucket has warped from the weight of the water pulling on the handle it is hung from and so a regular lid does not fit since it is now oval shaped rather than round. Until just a few mintues ago I had it temperarily open topped (no lid at all). The problem I was having was them flying up onto the board the bucket was hanging from and pooping (or even laying an egg) in the water. No biggie, I just cleaned it out everyday. I just went out and found out the real danger in having it open on top....one of my little 3 month old cockerels I guess flew up onto it and fell into the bucket and it was too full so he drowned. I am heart broken that he died in such a horrible manner but I really never thought of them falling into the bucket. I usually do not even keep the bucket full but my grandpa was taking care of my chickens while my husband and I were out of town this weekend and he was filling it all of the way up. We just got in last night and I noticed it was full but decided to wait until today to clean it out because it was late. Now I wish I would have dumped it last night. So anyway, does anyone else have a problem with lids not fitting on their water buckets?
