Automatic chicken waterer bucket holder

automatic chicken waterer bucket style

This automatic bucket waterer was easy to put together with a
DIY kit, a shelf bracket, some scrap wood, and a handfull of drywall screws.

A future system will make use of a 50 gallon plastic drum with some sort of  gutter collecting run off water from the roof of the chicken coop.

It sure was! We've decided that if you're raising more than about 15 chickens in the same area, the bucket waterer is the best. I was having to water those cockerels way too much (every other day! Aren't I spoiled? :-) )
