How to Make an Automatic Chicken Waterer with Nipple Drippers

How to Make an Automatic Chicken Waterer with Nipple Drippers
Made up a chicken waterer for the girls cage over the past few days. This one is 25L/6½ gal in size & should last the 4 of them for at least a week if not longer I think.
A closed in waterer like this will also help to keep the water cleaner. It was a constant battle with the girls scratching dirt into their old feeder making it necessary to clean it every second day.
This waterer definitely took some of the “AWWW DAAAD” out of the daily chicken choirs.


The drill I used was an 8.5mm. 8.8mm or 11/32 are the suggested sizes for the tap size..
The tap used was a 1/8th BSP

This system has now been modified to include another watering station & has been connected to a large reservoir.. A bit of a look at the set up now can be found here

Hope you enjoy this quick DIY & your Chooks are doing well. Cheers all. 🐔 🐔
