A couple of pics of the one I just found with the yellow paint. I’ll be keeping this steel tank to replace a cracked brass one on another AGM. No other markings I have found yet. I’ll give it one more look over before pulling it apart for the fount. https://i.postimg.cc/x1HBR8k9/17-DC2973-5-F79-493-...

They can also negatively impact a garden if for instance you have a bunch of cherry tomatoes, then can decimate the ripe fruits pretty quickly. Rodents are also attracted when you have chickens so that may also be a consideration. Honestly though I think every home should have a cpl 2-3 chickens.
