    Hello,
    I'm building my PVC Tractor this weekend and still don't have an idea about how I'm going to incorporate the feeders and waterers. I'm pretty sure I'm going to use my galvanized spinning top troughs for feed purposes but still need some ideas for watering. I like the idea of the 5 Gallon bucket on top for easy filling but am unsure as to what type of water to put on the chickens end. Any links to pics or ideas would be great. Thanks ahead of time for your help.

    Why not incorporate the PVC frame into the watering and feeding system? It would take some thinking and design, but I think it would be VERY cool to do.

    you could get some nipple waters and put them into a part of the frame and attach a 5 gallon bucket to that piece of pipe good luck
