What You'll Need:
-empty 2 liter bottle
-water nipples (I'll include a link below)
-something to hold the bottle in place inside the coop
It's kind of like a giant gerbil/hamster waterer, huh?
1) Take a clean 2 liter bottle and drill a hole in the cap just large enough to fit the water nipple in.
2) Poke a few small holes in the bottom of the bottle. This will prevent the bottle from getting suction as the water level drops and keep the water from dripping.
3) Make a holder for your waterer. I suggest cutting out a hole in a small piece of would large enough for your bottle to sit in, but your chickens being able to reach the nipple too, of course, underneath. Then just nail/screw that piece wherever you would like in your coop.
4) Fill it, place it, and you're ready to go. That's it! Stupid easy, right?!
You can find the water nipples on Amazon. They're super cheap. I'm sure you can probably find them at tractor supply type stores too.
