My friends Lee and Robin of Farm Folly make homesteading look easy. I’ve been following their escapades ever since they moved out to Oregon two years ago to restore an old farmhouse and learn to live off their land. Their latest project has been to build an automatic chicken waterer, which consists of a large barrel for water collection, a sturdy stand, and a commercial water bowl. It’s a pretty simple design, but should be a huge time saver- no more dealing with dinky waterers that have to be replaced often.
