An elegant chicken waterer

DH created this very nice system for watering the chickens: Hose runs from faucet to bottom of chicken coop, and then into a 50 gallon cistern from Home Depot. He attached a pvc pipe with 5 watering nipples (found on Amazon), and then ran a second pipe through the floor of the coop, attached to a second pvc pipe outside with 4 more nipples.

A toilet float inside the cistern allows it to automatically fill. The white cone was fabricated to keep the pullets from sitting on top of the cistern and pooping.
