Remember last summer when I posted our homemade chicken waterer using a 5 gallon bucket and a flower pot base? Well, the other day someone blogged about a modified version they made to hang in their chicken coop. It looks pretty cool!
I think we will be trying this for this year’s Chicken Nuggets (and possibly the blogger’s other design for a chicken feeder). Normally we just plop the waterer on the ground inside the electric netting. The chickens promptly drink and then poop in it. Nice.
So after reading about the modified version, Josh’s mind started whirling. (I swear, I think I saw smoke…) Since we don’t have anything out in the fields to hang a waterer from, he is envisioning a tripod with the waterer hanging down from the middle. It would be similar to a camera tripod or one you use to cook over an open fire but maybe made out of wood so it would be sturdier.
I guess we’ll just have to see what he comes up with!
