    I fill buckets and bowls with water. Not sure if there is a "best way" but I do like the design above.

    I use a couple of horse buckets outside. A dog waterer in the coop. Have 21 birds to care for....small flock.

    Nipple waterers. Only way to go. Five gallon bucket will last me (5 BO's) over a week in hot summer weather. No daily cleaning, no daily filling. Happy chickens.
