I swear I came up with this myself. I’m sure this is really how it’s supposed to be setup and I haven’t had the heart to Google this as I’d like to think I’m smart for just one night.
Our chickens keep on making a mess of their water and we (Milly) was tired of it. She charged me with finding a solution.
This is what I came up with.
I pounded in three pegs into the ground around the outside of the chicken waterer. Those are my gum boots in case you were wondering.
I blocked up the waterer with a few 2x4’s. The pegs are fairly snug against the waterer.
Now the water is up high enough so the ladies don’t make a mess of things. I was pretty impressed with myself so I thought I’d share.
“Thank you for the clean water setup. I’m moulting and I just can’t stand it when the other chicks poop in my drinking water.”
Here’s a picture of our Americauna rooter. We actually have a couple of roosters but I think this one rules the coop. We are thinking we need to get rid of our Dark Cornish rooster as things are just too crazy with both of them around. Anyone need a Dark Cornish Alpha male?
