Intro: DIY Chicken Waterer for $10 or Less
I am making a waterer for my poultry: 4 guineas, 4 ducks, and 4 hens. I also need a feeder, but , since I don't have them yet, I will make the feeder after the waterer, which is harder. I cant buy one, because it is usually too expensive. This will show you how to make a chicken waterer for $10 or less with things that you have in your home and things you can buy under 5 or 10 dollars.
Step 1: Tools and Materials
Drill Hawaiian Punch Bottle
Drill Bit Fish Tank Air Hosing
Hot Glue Gun Water bottle
Hot Glue Duct Tape
Step 2: Make It! It's So Easy!
First, you need to drill a hole in the bottom center or off center of the Hawaiian Punch bottle and, using the end of the paintbrush, push the air hosing in. Now, using the pencil, punch a hole in the lid of the water bottle. Push in the air hosing. Next, using hot glue, seal around the hosing. Using scissors, cut an opening, and cover the sharp edges with duct tape. You now have a waterer!
Step 3: Finishing Touches
Now, you can take air dry clay and make a small brick. Then attach it somehow (I glued it) to the bottom of the water bottle. This will help it from tipping over and rolling away.
