My ducks and chickens need fresh clean water all year. It can be costly if you aren't lucky like me and have water ways that run through your backyard. When we first got our chickens and ducks we noticed a small stream that runs through the yard so we decided to take full advantage of it and build a small pond.
The other day I was getting all my chickens fresh water and realized I can divert the water into a small creek through the chicken run, into the pond, and so on. So my chickens can get fresh clean water all year without wasting any and saving physical energy that can be used elsewhere.
It is of course a work in progress, it is going to look stunning when I am done though. I am going to finish the digging and lining today then later tonight I am going to get some plants and rocks to make it beautiful. With the extreme heat and drought conditions we may face this summer it is never a bad idea to find ways of conserving water.
Now that's making water work.
