Installing a rainwater tank allows you to capture rainwater to use for watering gardens, lawns or in this case, providing water for chickens. We’ve created a metal structure to hold the tank and elevating it allows easy access to the tap function.
While pumps are always an option, having the tank higher than the chook house allows gravity to feed the water. Utilising the self-feeder designs available for providing water (or feed) to chickens makes them appealing to people who might worry about looking after their chickens when they’re away. Rigging up the down pipe, its a fairly quick and easy process.
