Chicken Waterer Solution:
Drill 3 proper size holes (5/16) in a standard 5 gallon bucket. Wrap nipple threads once or twice with teflon tape and screw into holes. Hang bucket around 16-24" off the ground 'somehow' (that's another story, used a spare ladder & chain), fill with water & cover the top. Don't worry about training chickens, just take away their existing water source & they'll figure it out very quickly. Works great. Will order more. Not sure what to do in the winter, but 7-8 months of the year this is the answer. Setup two buckets to water 12 hens. Now instead of having to take water out every day or two; I fill the two 5 gallon buckets about once a week and the water stays clean. Nice.
