    I'm new to chickens. Adopted 1 rooster & 3 hens than showed up in my yard 1/1/16. Bought a small coop so not much room. Any clever ideas & suggestions for a small hanging waterer?

    Welcome to BYC, you could use a 2 gal. bucket with chicken nipples on it and you can do it inside or out.

    You can also use a pvc pipe for the nipple waterers - my chickens don't like them much. But I've heard others have had great success. The PVC pipe is still in my coop with the hope that I can train the next flock!

    I like that one.

    The PVC nipple watererer I have out isn't in their way, that's why I haven't moved it. We have a large run...
