About: I am happily married with one son, two dogs, a ball python, Russian tortoise, and many fish. I like to fossil hunt, all things Jeep, Walt Disney World, camp, hunt & fish, and garden. Anything new appeals...

So this is the follow on to https://www.instructables.com/id/PVC-Chicken-Gravity-Feeder/...

I ordered a Chicken Waterer Cup from Beaktime.com to compliment the PVC Chicken Feeder I made last week.  This was also something I had seen on ebaY.

This was just as easy and inexpensive as the feeder.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materials

I used the leftover 4 inch PVC Sewer Pipe from PVC Chicken Feeder ($7.50 when I purchased it).
  1. 48 inches of 4 inch PVC Sewer Pipe
  2. 1 - 4 inch cap end ($1.50)
  3. 1 - 4 inch Female Adapted ($3.50)
  4. 1 - 4 inch threaded cap ($1.50)
  5. 1 - Beakup ($4.99 plus shipping) www.beaktime.com
  6. PVC Solvent
  7. Silicone Sealant

Step 2: Assembly

This is also very easy.
  1. Cut PVC Sewer pipe to length - I cut it to 48 inches which gives me 2-3 gallons
  2. Seal using the PVC Solvent the cap to the bottom of the PVC pipe
  3. Drill a 3/8 inch hole through the PVC cap and the PVC Pipe
  4. Apply Silicone Sealant to the threads on the Beakup
  5. Insert the Beakup into the 3/8 inch hole and let set based upon the drying time of the silicone sealant
  6. Place the female adapter on the top of the PVC pipe
  7. Add water then thread on the top cap
This needs to be mounted so the cap sits about as high as the back of your smallest chicken according to the direction.  There are many other ways to do this with 5 gallon buckets and such but I already had the leftover PVC Sewer Pipe so I gave it a try.

Enjoy...
