Square Buckets with Drilled Holes
Pre-drilled square buckets are ideal when building DIY feeders for orphan lambs and goat kids. Flat sides won’t wobble on walls and panels, reducing the likelihood of being knocked around by assertive livestock.
We’ll drill our square buckets with your choice of holes for bucket teat units or spiral poultry feeders.
Before completing your order…
- Order accessories that go along with the drilled buckets under “Accessories” tab below—teat units, lids, etc.
- Specify the number of holes and location (see second photo) per bucket at checkout by using the letters in the customization box.
Hole for the Spiral Feeder will be in the bottom center of the bucket.
Please specify location and number of holes per bucket at checkout using the customization box.

Just got the buckets. They seem a little thin in plastic on the sides where the holes were drilled. When I put the buckets together the nipples point down because of the weight. Hopefully they will hold up.

This is a durable bucket. I ordered it pre-drilled, so it just had to be assembled when it all arrived. The pre-drilling was very reasonable and it's a good unit. I ordered the 4 gallon bucket since we have six bottle babies right now. It's been great, we only have to fill once a day now. The bucket takes some abuse since the lambs will butt against it when it runs out of milk.

I ordered holes for convenience--I could have drilled them myself. Bucket came with holes the right size in the right place and for the inexpensive drilling charge, bucket arrived ready to go, which was a nice luxury.
