There is plenty to be done on a homestead, and one less thing to worry about can make a big difference. For a convenient, easily assembled water supplier, there is a great tutorial on Instructables.
There are no complicated instructions or expensive supplies here. In fact, most of the supplies could probably be found around the homestead or at a home supply store for under $10. Just a five gallon bucket, some pvc fittings, and a bit of hardware is all it takes to make your own chicken waterer.
