Need a watering system
I’m starting to see the end of all the construction of the chicken stuff.
I still have a few things to do but they are minor compared to what I’ve already done.
Today I needed to get the automatic water system for the chickens completed.
Water container construction
I had this piece of plastic five gallon container that I’d cut into this quite some time ago and thought it would make a good watering system. I purchased a flout valve that clamps onto it’s side. It needs a top to keep the chicken out of the water and keep the water cleaner so I rounded up this board and cut it to size and cut a hole in it for a hole to hook to the valve. I only had to trim the front side of the plastic container so they could get their heads into the water.

A few of my peeps
The chicks come out of the coop in the morning when I let them out and run all over feeding away until they get full or tired and they rest for awhile.
Tried again to find my chick
Around 3 I decided to go over to my brother’s chickens and try once more to find my lost chicken.
But it was already too late and I still couldn’t see too good. I looked through all the chicks and just couldn’t tell which one it was so that didn’t work out.
I did a bit of tidying up putting some of the tools I’d been using away and still have more of that to do.
That was it for the day. Nice day.
