    Hello, I visited a Serama breeder yesterday and noticed that he had these waterers that were water bottles (plastic) turned upside down with these little white things hooked on to the bottom. Like in this picture that I took off from google images... (just click the link)

    I was wondering where you find the little bottom pieces?

    Thanks and have a great day [​IMG]

    actually all you need is a 3 liter bottle and a bowl for it to sit in.. drill a hole or holes near the very bottom( i did this with a 5 gallon bucket and will with a water jug soon) i rubber stopped it for when i am filling.


    You need a vacuum action on the container for the auto feature to work. so the 3 liter bottle top will work fine. the bowl will only fill up to cover the hole you drilled in the bottle and refill as needed.


    i already had the drillbit driver thingy.. the rubber stop was $1.05 at lowes, and the beauty of that, is i can only fill one bottle at a time, so i only need ONE!
