Bucket, PVC, and nipple chicken waterer
posted a couple of weeks ago about Julie's ingenious pegboard
watering system that
allowed her to easily move our nipples up to accomodate growing
chicks. Well, those chicks are just about grown up now and are
enjoying their adult digs out in a tractor/coop combo. Julie sent
me some followup pictures of her new watering system. She wrote:
We finally finished the nipple watering system for the chicken tractor (7 nipples for 16 birds) - the bottle is for the shorter birds. We are leaving the water jugs in the coop until all the birds are tall enough to reach the nipples
This one is needs a little lift to reach the nipple... smart bird!
I wanted to share my photos with the internet world because the projects other people have come up with inspired me so and now I can to be an inspiration to others and your website will help with that! Thanks for posting and it validates all the time I spent preparing for this venture. I researched for months before I got my chicks and designed my chicken tractor. I looked at every design and idea people had done and what I came up with was the best of the best. I am so glad I discovered your nipple watering system and I am designing a system to go into the coop for the winter as we get temps here in the high desert as low as 0 to -5 degrees for a few days.
