    I thought this might be a helpful thread, especially if you have links or sources. What do you find useful?

    I really like these buckets I bought at Walmart that have a locking lid. My ladies have tried to perch on it and haven't managed yet so I can keep it in the yard for storing treats. I just bought another for all the clean up items I use such as litter scoop

    These inexpensive coop cups have been really useful this week. I need some extra food/water stations because I'm introducing some new bockens and there is some charging around and things are getting knocked over. These are inexpensive ($1.50) and fit on the hardware cloth or our dog pen chicken run fencing. I usually use them for grit.

    My top fill 5 gallon waterers from Harris Farms are the best purchase I have made. Once I upgraded the small internal float from the old design to the new design, they work perfectly.
