OK i do not like my current watering system. (see on my page). The bowl gets so dusty I have to clean it each night. The 5 gallon bucket gets algae in it in 3 days. I want to be able to go camping over the weekend not worry too much about them. I do have a friend who can come check on them once or twice.

Anyone use these?
Don't forget that in the summer heat the water will get too hot for them to drink. The waterers should be changed at least twice a day in hot weather. Good Luck
Changed or filled? So basically if I don't get a auto waterer I am screwed at even leaving for a couple days?

BTW the waterers are in the shade under the patio.

Do you have a neighbor that will help out? Maybe know a kid in 4H or something. You may be fine with the waterer in the shade but i would worry. Good Luck
Don't forget 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar per gallon of water will benefit your chickens and keep waterers nice and clean. You can't use it in metal waterers though. Just a thought.
