    Thanks to a few ideas on BYC. I made my own systems. Thought I'd share.
    All made out of 4" PVC

    Nice set up, those PVC systems are really space saving.

    An update. I didn't think the chickens were getting enough water. So I put a bucket in there and they acted like they never drank before. I don't think they figured out the water system after a month. So I switched back to a traditional waterer. Now I will be cleaning that everyday. Ugh
    But I have a corner design I am thinking on. Stay tuned

    Sorry to hear you had to go back to your regular waterer.

    I try not to have to much food and water in the coop. Excessive bad weather for more than a day I'll do it but having it accessible all the time in there promotes a lot more "poop in the coop" lol.

    How big is you all's coop that keep food in there all the time?
