Our drinkers overcome the problems of evaporation, spillage and soiled water. These drinkers incorporate a professional valve operated drinker cup (used by poultry experts) that only allow a small amount of water in the red cup at any one time. When the chickens drink from the red cup and the water level goes down, the valve automatically replenishes the cup. With traditional drinkers, we regularly had to change the water as the chickens had scratched dirt into the drinker. Like us, chickens need a fresh supply of clean water. Each waterer holds approximately 1 gallon of water, so with the double pack you have 2 gallon capacity. Each waterer is approx 20" tall.
These drinkers won't heat up like metal containers or degrade easily like other plastic ones on the market. We've had customers who have been using the same drinker and feeder set for 10 years!
HOOKS FOR HARDWARE CLOTH
These waterers simply hook onto the hardware cloth of your coop run, making cleaning and filling much easier than hanging drinkers. These hooks are made from nylon plastic so are very strong with replacements available if they do manage to break. The hooks are designed to hook onto 1" x 1" hardware cloth but if your holes are smaller you can fix the metal brackets supplied to your hardware cloth with wire and then hook the waterers onto the brackets rather than directly onto your hardware cloth.
BRACKETS FOR SOLID WALLS
If you want to fix your waterer to a solid timber or iron wall instead of your hardware cloth, 4 aluminum 'solid wall brackets' and screws are provided with your double waterer pack, free of charge.
SLIMLINE, COMPACT DESIGN
A big advantage is that these drinkers take up VERY little room in your coop. If you have a smaller coop, maximizing space is a key concern.
HEATED WATERER FOR WINTER
If you need your waterer to not freeze in the winter, we have found that clip on reptile lamps with a heat globe are perfect for clipping onto the Royal Rooster waterers to keep the water in the drinker tube and cups from freezing. These are not sold by Royal Rooster but can be found in pet stores or online.
FOR CHICKENS OF ALL AGES
As soon as your chicks have hatched, they can use these drinkers. They are ideal for chicks as they can't accidentally drown like they can in larger water containers. Just ensure you hang the drinker low enough for the chicks to reach. The cups are valve operated so they automatically replenish when the water level goes down meaning the chicks don't need to peck on the floats for the cups to work.
Royal Rooster's drinkers are made in Australia using a combination of local and imported materials. The drinker cups are professional 'lubing' cups made in Germany.
These sets are warehoused in the USA and generally shipped 1-2 days after an order is received. We use either FedEx, UPS or USPS, whichever is the most economical to your area.
