Homemade chicken waterers in action

Homemade chicken watererOur homemade chicken waterer photo contest ended last week, and we were thrilled by the ingenuity of the entries.  Alexandra Kent submitted our favorite entry --- a bucket waterer mounted on a plant hanger.  Why didn't we think of that?

The photo to the right by Vance Foster was a  close runnerup.  I like the simplicity of the drinking water bottle reservoirs, and I have to admit that the pullets made me laugh.

Many thanks to everyone who took the time to capture their chickens in action.  Stay tuned for another photo contest next year!
