    Hello,
    I am looking for information on how to make a chicken waterer using the 4090 water regulator. I need a materials list because I don't really know how to make one. I have 65 chickens and need a way to water them. I am using gal. waterers but don't like them because they poop all over them. I am looking for the cleanest water system for my birds. Please help.

    Thank you,
    Cindy

    Hi there, [​IMG] and welcome to BYC!

    Lots of people use nipple waterers attached to 5 gallon buckets. Nipples on the bottom. I don't use them, nor do I have any plans. But you might do a search here on BYC for some ideas on how to build them

    Good luck in all your poultry adventures!

    Welcome to BYC from West TN!

    Nipple system by far for me, I use a gravity system but if you want to hook to a pressure line you can use a regulator or a float system to control pressure or water level.
