Farm Friday - Coop Queen Dream

Last Friday I shared my bubbly excitement over the receipt of my Coop Queen poultry waterer and its accompanying drinker nipples.

It was an exciting day around here, let me tell you.

And I told you there would be pictures to follow, so, true to my word, here they are.

Mind you, I don't quite have it properly hung just yet, because I haven't made up my mind exactly where I want it. So for now it's resting atop the rabbit hutch, with the hose passing through the wire wall and into the hen house. And like everything else around my sorry excuse for a farm, it's held together with duct tape and baling twine.

See? I told you this was heady stuff....

And as a special bonus? Here is a picture of my rabbit Alice. She's a Flemish Giant, and roughly the size of a labrador retriever. If rubbing a rabbit's foot gives you good luck, gazing upon Alice should keep you covered, as well.

You're welcome.

In case you didn't know it, I'm like the queen of blog-hoppin' lately. It's kind of like square dancing but without the dated outfits, smelly gym, and elderly caller.

Here's the schedule I keep:
Monday: Homestead Revival's Barn Hop
Tuesday: Heavenly Homemaker's Gratituesday
and Wrinkled Mommy's Tuesday Archive Link-Up
Wednesday: My Life and Kids Finding the Funny
Thursday: A Rural Journal's Rural Thursday Blog Hop
Friday: Deborah Jean's Dandelion House's Farmgirl Friday
Saturday: Camera Critter's Life With Dogs Pet Blogger Hop and Country Momma Cooks Saturday Link-Up

Since today is Friday, that means I'm linking today's post with Deborah Jean's Dandelion House's Farmgirl Friday, but I'll also be linking this same post up with some of the hops listed above in the coming week. Come join the fun!


  1. Nice! They look happy. Thats much more sanitary. I would be excited too:)

  2. Is Alice cuddly, too? I'd want a bunny but, I'd want to cuddle it and hold it. I don't want to be pooped on, though.

  3. @Rachelle: Yes, much better, much cleaner. Cleaner good, poopy bad.
    @Amanda: I think what you're looking for is a pet rock covered in fake fur. ;-)

  4. Looks like a good watering system, Anne. So much cleaner than dumping water in a tub.

    What would be do without twine and baling wire!

  5. Love the drinker thing - that's so cool!

  6. Those waterers are very impressive. B

  7. This is very cool -- nice way to keep the water clean for your chickies!

  8. ha, those look like some happy chicks!

  9. We use those in our coop. They really are a time saver and more sanitary.

  10. What happy-looking chickens!
    Alice is beautiful.

  11. Wonderful post ~ glad the critters are happy ~ and you too ~~ thanks, namaste, (A Creative Harbor)

  12. That looks like a nice coop. I like how their water is set up.

  13. What a great idea. Just came across your blog from Homestead Revival. I will be back.


  14. I'm so behind on my comments. Thanks everyone for stopping in and commenting! Hope to see you back again soon. Have a great day!
