AmateurHomestead, who takes a creative approach to projects to keep costs down, shares a video tutorial on how to build a chicken waterer using a 5 gallon bucket.
This chicken watering device project is inexpensive and simple to make. It works by allowing gravity to power the automatic chicken waterer and provide for a small flock of chickens to have constant clean and fresh drinking water. Our only suggestion would be to choose HDPE (food grade safe) plastic buckets. This way you can make sure no harmful chemical leach into your chickens’ water supply. Watch the video below for the quick tutorial on how to make a super-easy chicken waterer using a 5 gallon bucket.
