    We put a automatic waterer in our chickens run. They love it! Fresh water all the time.

    It does get dirty but we have a on/off switch so we can clean it out. It's been great knowing our chickens have fresh water all the time.

    I have one of these automatic waterers, but I can't keep it clean. Is there any way to put a cover over it that will keep the chickens out of the water, yet still allow them to drink?
