Easy Fill Chicken Waterer

We keep our chickens in big cages to keep them safe from predators and so we have an easy time finding the eggs. One of the biggest hassles of this is filling the waterers inside the cages, especially after it rains. I decided there had to be a better way. Here it is and it doesn't cost a lot. The parts list is: 1 5 gallon bucket with lid 1 new oil pan some 1.5" PVC pipe, some fittings, PVC primer and cement, some gasket material, and a valve I started by using a hole saw to cut a hole in the top of the bucket for the pipe to fit through. You can see that the hole ended up a little bigger than the pipe but I'll take care of that. Here is the label from the gasket material I used. It comes in sheets. This kind came from Lowe's but I'm sure you can get some at any hardware store. I used some snips to cut the gasket into squares and to cut holes into the squares. These were my first cuts, so to speak. I had to enlarge them a little to fit around the pipe perfectly. Here are the fittings I used. Put a gasket over the long threaded piece on the left, then put it through the hole. Put the other gasket over the fitting on the inside of the lid, then install the nut on the inside and tighten it up. Here it is with the gasket on the upper fitting. It looks a little sloppy but I don't think the chickens will care. After you tighten up these fittings you need to make sure that the pipes and fittings fit together. Here is what it looks like. Then I used the PVC primer and cement to make the connections permanent. You probably don't want to cement the valve on at this point because you will want to put the pipe through the side of your cage. If you have the valve cemented on you will have to cut a big hole in the side of your cage and then repair it. You might want to assemble this in your chicken cage to make sure you have the height and angle of the fittings correct before you use the cement. Here is the primer and cement I used. Next, I used a drill with a 3/16" bit to drill four holes in the bucket about a 1/2" above the bottom. Here is the assembly placed into the oil pan. Here is the assembly in the corner of the cage. Here is the valve I used. It will keep bugs and vermin out of the water tank and it creates a vacuum that keeps all the water from pouring out. I used a tie wrap to hold the pipe to the side of the cage and used wire to hold the bucket steady. To fill it just turn on the garden hose, open the valve and pour water in. The pipe is big enough to let the air out while you are filling it. When you get it full just close the valve and you are done. The total cost was about $15 and now I don't have to get my feet muddy when it rains.

Peck-It-Clean Veggie Feeder for Chickens, Small (10" x 10"), Black – Includes Grid Panel, Cord, Togg

** This is our smaller Veggie Feeder (10" x 10"), ideal for international orders and smaller spaces. See our other listings for the larger size (16" x 10"). **Chickens LOVE to nosh on leafy greens, fruit, and yard scraps. But if these foods aren't held in place, they get tossed around and trampled into the litter far too soon.The Peck-It-Clean™ Veggie Feeder holds these treats tight. It provides the right amount of resistance so that your chickens can eat more naturally and more efficiently, staying active and keeping valuable nutrition for themselves and those delicious backyard eggs.Ships FREE within the U.S.!HOW IT WORKS:Simply insert loose veggies or fruit from the top.

For VIDEO instructions, copy and paste this link into a new browser window (https://youtu.be/W6JxH1en6n0).ANSWERS TO COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PECK-IT-CLEAN VEGGIE FEEDER: WHICH SIZE SHOULD I CHOOSE?We offer two sizes -- 10" x 10" (small, this listing) and 16” x 10” (large, see our other listings). Both work great to hold your chickens' treats in place. Choose the larger size if you have the space for it. Choose this smaller one if you have just a few chickens or a more compact space. And if you're ordering from outside the U.S., the smaller size saves you quite a bit on shipping. WHERE SHOULD I INSTALL IT AND HOW HIGH? The best place for it is right inside the door to your chicken coop, or wherever you can easily reach in with a handful of veggies or garden scraps to fill the feeder. The exact height depends on the height of your chickens. For standard laying hens, having the bottom edge about 12" to 14" from the ground should be about right.CAN I MOUNT IT ONTO A PLYWOOD WALL OR OTHER SOLID SURFACE?Yes. If the wall is thin enough, you could drill some small holes to run the cable ties and shock cord through. Or you could attach it with a few poultry fencing staples (not included). Or you could use a few small one-hole or two-hole straps, like those used to secure cable and conduit to a wall (also not included). HOW MUCH TENSION SHOULD THERE BE ON THE FEEDER?When empty, the top edge of the feeder should be about 2-4" from the wall/wire of your coop. You don't want to tighten it all the way against the wall as this would make filling it quite tricky.CAN I USE THE VEGGIE FEEDER WITH CHICKS AND PULLETS?It's better to wait until your chickens are fully feathered to introduce the feeder into their coop. If you have chickens of varying heights, you can mount the feeder somewhat lower for the smaller birds.Other questions? Please just ask!
