4. Expand and Customize

The ability to expand and customize an automatic waterer is a huge benefit!  Now remember, we’re talking about an automatic waterer that uses drinkers mounted on a hose or pipe. If you add more pens for that fancy new chicken breed, then all you need to do is extend the pipe and add another drinker- cheap and easy! 

If you chose to go with the run of the mill auto-filling pan from the feed store, you’ll need to purchase another one and run another garden hose to the new pen. No Bueno.
