So, commercial chicken waterers aren’t expensive, but here at Deezwin Greens, we like to re-use as much as possible. It’s with this in mind that I present our tutorial for a home made chicken fountain.
Chickens kick a lot of mess into their water, so something that has a reservoir for clean water is a must (unless you really like cleaning their water dish every couple hours). Commercial waterers work using Pascal’s Law. We created our own using the lid from a discarded olive oil bucket, a gallon juice jug and some super glue. Here’s how.
Collect materials. You need a shallow dish, a reservoir with a lid and some sort of adhesive appropriate to the materials you’re using. You also need either a small drill bit or a hammer and a nail.
Step 2: Using your drill, or your hammer and nail, poke holes around the bottom of the reservoir. You’ll need someone to hold the reservoir still.
