Chicken Water System

Chicken Water System

I put together a simple chicken watering system using a few things I had in the garage:

  • 1 length of [amazon_textlink asin=’B00EK9AXBS’ text=’2 ft x 4 inchs PVC Pipe’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’fromthealdergrove-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’9f76ddf5-4234-11e8-8a90-2d2c398bc663′]
  • one [amazon_textlink asin=’B000BQPX46′ text=’4″ slip cap’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’fromthealdergrove-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’eab728c6-4232-11e8-abe7-a3ee9fae45ff’]
  • one [amazon_textlink asin=’B000BPDJRU’ text=’4″ PVC coupler’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’fromthealdergrove-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’5ccacd4b-4233-11e8-80aa-b9fdfa0fcb5a’]
  • one  [amazon_textlink asin=’B001AUEHLC’ text=’4″ PVC Test Cap Fitting’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’fromthealdergrove-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’20f32be2-4234-11e8-9f63-771755f29dd6′]
  • 1 screw hook
  • PVC glue
  • 1 [amazon_textlink asin=’B014LSSTJA’ text=’chicken watering cup’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’fromthealdergrove-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’37b177fc-4234-11e8-93af-27972793265a’]

Glue everything together except for the clean out plug.  Drill a hole at the bottom so that the chicken watering cup can be screwed into place.  Add an O ring if the cup leaks.  I drilled a hole in the collar so that it can be hung in the chicken run.  I also drilled a few holes in the test cap in case it rains.  This way the upper section doesn’t hold water, but will drain through to the inside.  The test cap will also keep leaves and large insects out too.  Plus if the section holding the water become air tight the cup wouldn’t dispense water correctly.
