How to make a chicken waterer with nipple drippers..

Made up a chicken waterer for the girls cage over the past few days.. This one is 25L/6½gal in size & should last the 4 of them for at least a week if not longer I think.. A closed in water feeder 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.. I think the closed in feeder will definitely take 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
