    Not looking forward to hauling water to the coop this winter and was thinking about getting a rain barrel located by the coop. Found a rain barrel you can make yourself online today and am considering it myself.

    Thought a lot of you would be interested in seeing how to make a rain barrel...

    Home depot sells a rain collector that is made to go under your gutter like that. (they were 50 bucks) FYI. Don't know if it's a seasonal item or not, but they for sure had them this summer. Also, depending on your space, I use a stock tank.

    Love the trash can idea though. But if you need it to look "appealing" Home depot has that one that looks cool.
