Water for the deprived

DSCN5336You would think our chickens never had water before.

This past weekend we installed the automatic watering system. We have to take it down during the winter cold months. This was an extremely cold winter. Even at this late date I’m not sure the freezing temperatures are gone. We will be keeping our fingers crossed.

DSCN5335You can see our set up in this picture.

Each year it changes a little. We use a 55 gallon, plastic barrel. We added a spigot to it and made some changes to a short piece of garden hose. We used PVC pipe and drip nipples to finish it out. If you want more detailed directions, just email me and I will be glad to help.
