So techinically challenged - that's me right? It is. I have access to an abundance of 5 gallon buckets and thought we would attempt to make our own waterer. Drilled some holes, set it up and then...THE FLOOD WAS LIKE SOMETHING OUT OF NOAHS ARK! Chickens running for high ground, me - running for dry ground - so BEFORE I try again...did I do something wrong? I put the holes in the bottom of the bucket prior to filling it - BUT I did NOT put the lid on. Am I supposed to put the lid on? Because lid off it took about 2 seconds for it to overflow the pan underneath. Also,I only did 2 tiny little 1/4 holes - should I go with something smaller? Should I find a way to plug said holes until I have the lid on? What have I done wrong this time? I have plenty of free buckets, but not enough dry shoes to keep this up! I think my problem was the lid thing...but would love confirmation on this! All input greatly appreciated!
