Thank you!!

A million thanks to our readers who helped us out by voting for our entry in the Avian Aqua Miser giveaway.   I love you guys!  We won!!

We are very excited to get to try one of their new bucket waterers.   They are designed to keep the water off ground level where birds are notorious for standing in and on and knocking over other types of waterers.  Poop free water!  We'll give you a full report when we get it set up.

They have another type of waterer, too, that's smaller and better for crates and small enclosures. 

AND!   They have DIY kits, so if you have your own bucket, etc, they can send you only the gasket, nipples and drill bit that you need to make your own waterer.  

The products are made on a family farm by Anna and Mark from Walden Effect - a terrific blog about their adventures in full time 'trailersteading'.   Check out the list of books they've written [left sidebar of their blog] on the many aspects of homesteading and growing and storing your own food.   The blog itself is a treasure trove of knowledge.   Look for several posts a day on every aspect of the farm.   I especially love the brown bag series that Ann does occasionally with detailed reviews of books and vids about homesteading and permaculture.   Their blog is a daily must-read for me.   Check it out!

And - as a way to share the love,  I'll be doing a couple of giveaways here on Rurification, too.   I've got a couple of great cookbooks to pass along to you.   Stay tuned!!


  1. Congratulations, Robin! Happy chicken means more eggs and more chicken poop for the garden; which will means more vegetables. :o Oh wait a minute! More eggs and vegetables also means more work. On second thought maybe you shouldn't install the waterer; you need some time to visit with your friends and sleep. Lol

  2. Congrats! That's so great. See? You are loved. :) Poop-free water is the proof.
