2. Save Time and Effort

Obviously, an automatic “anything” was designed to mechanically do the work that someone once did manually. Usually, this work is time-consuming, repetitive, not fun, yet very necessary. If you’re keeping chickens now, I won’t have to tell you that filling and cleaning water bowls is a daily chore that takes time and effort better spent elsewhere. Nevertheless, it must get done.

Early in our chicken endeavors, my wife and I maintained four or five different breeds, each in their own pen. I figured with the dumping, scrubbing, hose dragging, walking and pan filling I spent about 15-20 minutes a day, every day, on watering. That’s 2 ½ hours a week, 10 hours a month, 120 hours a year!
