    Very nice! I'm going to make one like yours, only thing is - I have the little plastic cups to use under each nipple so I still have to find the square PVC pipe that the cup attaches to. Great job on yours! I hope mine turns out as good!

    what could you do for the winter so it won't freeze? Anyone tried that trailer tape that you plug in?

    Thank you all! I'm glad you like it. Sorry K-Chick, I don't have a solution for the winter/freezing problem. We don't really have that problem here in Arizona! HeHe... You could probably wrap the pipe in insulation and maybe put a lamp by the bucket to keep it from freezing? Mine was built with summer in mind. I can just throw a frozen soda bottle in there and cool the water down for them to drink! Easy peasy! It sure makes like alot easier. You've got to love that it keeps the poop out! Not to mention dust. We get alot of dust storms here.

    That looks great. It is so much easyer to just fill the bucket and not have to worry about cleaning anything once a week or every other day

    AMAZING! Who would have thought!?!?! Obviously the chickens know how to drink from it? That's cool. The clean part about it is the GREATEST part. Ingenious! I'm going to show my hubby! thanks
