I know we have had lots of questions about which watering system to use for our chickens. We have tried a couple, some have gone by the wayside, some we still pick up some at the feed store and then put them right back down again. Our girls will drink out of the gravity-fed, nippled barrels that we posted about earlier. But, they are definitely not their preferred method of drinking.
This is our chickens’ favorite waterer… Ours holds between 2 and 3 gallons. They do make them bigger. The only drawback we have found is we cannot put cider vinegar in it since it is aluminum.
