New Drinking Containers

Well this is somewhat overdue, but we have finally made the shift from the white drinking containers (which had to be cleaned and refilled every 2 hours) to locally made ones from jerrrycans which take about 10 liters each and can last for most of the day with a coupla refills. 

The old containers used to take about 120liters of water per refill for all of them with the largest taking 10l and the others about 4liters, however the more commonly used ones used to dry up within an hour or so. With all the chickens consuming about 180liters of water a day this made for quite a bit of tiresome manual labor …

Also interesting is that the chickens took to the new containers instantly which was also a good thing…
