Homemade chick waterer

Chick brooder made out of a cardboard box with homemade chicken waterer

I like the simplicity of many of our customers' chick brooder setups.  Clearly, our homemade chicken waterers fit into the systems easily, keeping the brooders dry while using up very little space.  Here's what Nicki from Wisconsin had to say about her homemade waterer (pictured above):

It took about five seconds for the chicks to figure out what they were doing with the nipple.  We tied the bottle to a chair leg and hung it over the box. We nearly had a stampede to get to it and play in the water!
We still have a water bottle waterer for the chicken walker/cage that we push around the yard for them.  We have a dog that "Plays" with them to death hence the need for the chicken walker.

Thanks so much for your great product!  Enjoy the pictures.

The image to the right shows Jamie David's half-grown chicks, upgraded to a bucket waterer.  Meanwhile, lest you think that only chickens can take to our waterer, two of our customers sent in photos of other types of poultry in action.  The image on the left below shows two day old ducklings and guinea keets drinking from Diane Watson's waterer.  She emailed that the waterer is made "using a 4" pvc pipe cap as the reservoir.  It holds a quart of water, easily refills from the top, and does not take up valuable brooder floor space."  On the right, you see Barbara's two week old chicks and guinea keets drinking from her own homemade chick waterer.
