Build a Homesteading Chicken Nipple Watering System

This step by step tutorial of how to build a homesteading chicken nipple watering system is easy to make, inexpensive and will help your chicken flock to be healthier by creating a clean water source. Anyone who has ever raised a flock knows that chickens seem to love to poop in their water dish if possible. By creating a watering system that eliminates that opportunity, bacteria can not contaminate the water.

Threaded chicken nipples can quickly and easily be installed in a 5 gallon bucket or a PVC pipe. Simply make a hole using a 3/8″ drill bit at the bottom of a bucket or PVC pipe and put a little pipe tape to make it tight and screw the chicken nipples into the hole. Place a cover over the bucket and you have clean water available to your chickens whenever they want it.
