yes, I would like automatic waterers, but right now it's not doable. I have one 5 gallon bucket in my main coop with nipples (which the chickens do use) and in the "baby" coop I have the white plastic waterers that have the red bottoms. Ideally, once you screw the black lid on the water is supposed to stop free flowing and only come out as the chickens drink the water. However, I have one that doesn't seem to work very well. I've tightened as much as I can, but the water keeps coming out. Does anyone else have this problem? or what am I doing wrong. Is there a secret?
