Stay-Clean Water Barrel



Chicken crap in your water? I know, right? I have tried many different ways but this thing works better than anything I have found so far. Made with Horizontal Chicken Nipple Waterer fittings (easy to find on Amazon)and a plastic 55 gallon drum. Also a cover for the entire top so chickens pooping up there won't be a problem.

These nipples are threaded but I just drilled holes in the barrel for a snug fit and hot-glued them in.

I added on a water spigot to drain it if needed but I found this was also an easy way to fill it.
Placing it up on some bricks put it at the right height. For a dozen chickens, filling this would last for a month or more.
