So I have to refill my 4 girls little old brooder water & feed dispenser like 2 times a day now and that..... is .....getting....OLD! So I have been searching today for an alternative for the water and feed dispensers. I found this http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Just+say+"no"+to+the+$60+chicken+waterer.-a0210169526 And I thought... oh that's easy I can do that!!! Even if I can't get my hand's on a water jug I can DEF find something like it, and for my 4 girls Iv got a can full of plastic recyclable containers all washed out and just begging me to find a new use for them! Even if I don't have to fill it for 2 or 3 day's at a time that better than twice a day! I think I'm going to try to make a feed dispenser too. Can I get some tips from people about this little project I'm starting for myself? The tips on that link say to paint the part's to protect the plastic from the UV damage. What kind of paint to you suggest? She suggest's white, Id like that (it'll match the coop) but I'm worried about the water coming into contact with the paint. Should I use a special paint? And where can I get a pan? Maybe a large planter liner? And one of my old nursery pot's? With a bottle that fit's down in there? What do you think?
