Have a good idea for a rain gutter? Answered

I have a chicken coop, rain gets in from the cement floor it sits on outside. I need rain gutters to divert the rain from the wavy galvanized tin roof and away from the cement floor. Chickens have wet feet!

How about 2 pine boards nailed together at right angles to form a "V" shape and tilted so rain goes out 1 side only. Then at low end attach a small gauge chain to guide the water to a watering station. The chain idea comes from Japan where they are used instead of down pipes. They make a nice soft sound too.
