Have you ever heard of chicken nipples? No, this is not a lesson on chicken biology.
Chicken nipples are these nifty little gadgets you can use to make all sorts of chicken waterers. And the best part of chicken nipples is that, if the container you use to make your waterer is enclosed, the water will stay CLEAN. If you have chickens, you know what a big deal this is. If you don’t, you’ll learn! This is what my old chicken waterer looks like after just one day in the coop, even though I have it up on a block to try to keep out most of the dirt.
You can install chicken nipples in a 5 gallon bucket (a great substitute for standard flock waterers), in a PVC pipe (in your own gravity fed water system – never have to walk into the run to fill a waterer again), or even in the cap of a bottle (chick waterer, or water for a single chicken in isolation).
Here is a little video I made to show you how easy chicken nipples are to install.
You can buy these cool little gadgets all over the web, but I got mine from Amazon. And I got extra so that I could give a few away to you! So if you’d like to try making your own chicken waterer, please see the form below for all the ways you can enter. Good Luck!
