I admit it…I am a cheapskate. I do what I can to try to make things last as long as I can. Sometimes it’s because I hate waste. Sometimes it’s because town is a half hour away…and sometimes, it’s just because I like the challenge of it all.
It’s been hot here lately. Heat indexes have slowly worked their way past 95 degrees….hot and very humid. The chickens have been drinking and drinking water. I’ve been out checking them two or three times a day. Yesterday in the middle of the heat, one of the chicken waters sprung a leak. Near the top of the water was a small hole but the hole was small enough that I couldn’t even see it.
Well…glue gun to the rescue. I put glue on the outside and and glue on the inside of the hole. It worked….the chickens have water and I didn’t have to run to town. I will pick up a spare water next time I’m in town just in case the patch doesn’t last forever. For now, the chickens have three waters and I don’t have to worry about them.
