Simple PVC Nipple Waterer For Chickens
“My new 1-gal. pvc chicken waterer comes with up to 8 drinker valves that keep the chickens’ drinking water clean at all times. It can be insulated so it’ll never freeze up,” says Jason Birch, Hooversville, Penn.

    The 3-ft. tall, T-shaped waterer is made from 1 1/2-in. pvc pipe. It has a screw-on cap on top for filling and 2, 4, 6, or 8 drinker valves at the bottom. It sells for $25 plus S&H.

    “A big advantage is that with the screw-on cap there’s no need to clean the inside of the waterer. The drinker valves can be easily cleaned by turning each valve a quarter turn and removing the cup for cleaning.”

    Each drinker valve can serve 8 to 10 chickens. “The waterer can be easily upgraded to accommodate more chickens as needed,” says Birch.

    Birch sells the components for the basic, non-heated model and the customer can then put it together in only about 25 min. Or, he sells pre-built units. He also makes a heated no-freeze model with heat tape that’s only sold as a pre-built unit.

    The heated 2-drink cup waterer sells for $49.99 plus S&H.

    Birch says he can custom-build his waterers to the customer’s specifications.
