Homemade chicken waterers

It's easy to make an automatic chicken waterer that's a perfect match for your backyard flock.  The simplest solution is a bucket waterer, but you can also install chicken nipples in PVC pipes attached to 55 gallon barrels, include various heating elements to keep your waterer thawed in the winter, and much more.

Chicken bucket waterer
The perfect kit to water up to 50 birds.
$15 (free shipping)
The 3 pack DIY kit with drill bit makes one bucket waterer or three smaller waterers.
PVC pipe chicken waterer
Water larger flocks for less.
$30 (free shipping)
The 10 pack kit comes will 11 nipples (if you leave a note to delete the hanging wires) and can water up to 166 birds.


For best results, we recommend starting with our do it yourself kit, which includes complete instructions to help you build the perfect waterer for your coop or tractor.  You can choose between our most popular kits above, or shop for other choices in our store.

Finally, the posts below are another great way to get those creative juices flowing by seeing unique chicken waterers created by our customers.  If you've made a chicken waterer you'd like to share with our readers, I hope you'll take a minute to email your design to info@avianaquamiser.com.
