    I have a dilemma: I have 4 hens, a tiny coop that tilts slightly and no electricity and I would LOVE to buy a hanging waterer so that I can feel safer about the birds knocking it over and/or spilling water in the coop in the winter - but the smallest hanging waterers I find are all huge!! They would take up a huge amount of space in the coop! Does anyone make a thinner/smaller hanging waterer? My girls can go a week without emptying a gallon waterer (I do change the water, wash it, etc - but they certainly don't need more than a gallon in their coop overnights)

    hang a small chick waterer with wire wrapped around it to make a casing.

    use wire or small link chain.

    works AWESOME!

    I too would like to know what might be available for small hanging waterers? The chick waterer is too small for my girls. Also what brand is safe to hang, since all seem to have handles? My mini-coop is not on level ground so hanging the waterer would help!
