PVC Chicken Waterer
I am so sorry for the delayed response. We live in North GA, and have freezing weather as well. I usually switch to a typical metal waterer with warmer pan under it, but plan to put the heater cord wrapped around the PVC as we get ready to winterize the coop. We have the coop wired for lighting, so we are ready for that. I will look for the link for the heater wrap and post it. Thanks so much for your question!The chickens usually don’t leave a bunch of residual water in the cup when they drink, but I can see the concern! I will see if I can come up with some options!!! Thanks so much for the question! Julie (Mrs. Ugarxfish)

Sorry for the delay. All out water jugs have a whole in the center that we just pop out. The important thing is that you not remove the entire cap, or the water will continue to flow out, and over the large PVC opening that the bottle sits on. Back pressure on the smaller hole keeps the water from continually flowing. I hope that answers your question! Thanks!!!
Yes, we did! It is not 3 years old and the girls are still happy! I have placed vinyl lattice over the hardware cloth walls and can place thin plexiglass between the two to help control wind and cold in the winter time. I would be happy to share more pics if you would like. Planning an addition to the back to increase the run space. I am so excited! I am in the design process now. But, the roof for the dust box is next. Making it as a lift up on so that it will quit becoming a mud pit every time it rains. My girls get a wee bit upset! :)

@ JoLynnD1, be sure to leave the cap on the water jug to restrict the flow.
@ driscolldb, we haven't had problems with them roosting in the arms, probably because it is just a few inches off of the ground. We do have one bantam that likes to roost on the water jug.
@ KelseyF6, we posted the watering plans under pvc chicken waterer.
@ rjessup, 4 pipes hold a 5 gallon bucket of feed. Approximately 20 to 25 lbs of feed.
