    I found a few humidifiers at the curve last week, made a few cuts and a new to me FREE chick waterer.

    I just had the idea of the top of my head, thought i share it.

    Before: Everything works on them, people just don't replace the wicks, and throw them out.

    I put it in my outside brooder with my teenagers. They love it! It's not really that high of a water level. But I think I can adjust that. I think the dehumifyier idea is a go also. i see no reason why not.

    GREAT IDEA!!

    I love repurposed inventions. There is a similar humidifier collecting dust in my garage, so I am gonna give this a try. You can never have enough waterers in AZ.

    Thank you!!
