Double Pack - Drinker with Twin Cups
This item includes:
- 2 x 1 gallon chicken waterers (approx 20" tall) with twin cups and rear hooks
- 2 x ergonomically designed lids
- 4 x solid wall brackets & screws
- Out of stock in USA warehouse. Ships from Australia
Our waterers overcome the problems of evaporation, spillage and soiled water. These drinkers incorporate two professional valve operated drinker cups (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 and are 20" tall. So this twin pack gives you 2 gallon capacity. A drinker with twin cups is great for hydrating around 8 chickens (or less refilling for fewer chickens!). One drinker will last 4 chickens around 1 a week in capacity.
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 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 you have smaller holes, the metal brackets supplied with your order can be fixed to your hardware cloth with wire or zip ties. The waterers can then hook onto these brackets rather than the hardware cloth directly.
BRACKETS FOR SOLID WALLS
If you want to fix your waterer to a solid timber or iron wall instead of mesh, aluminum 'solid wall brackets' and screws are included with your double waterers.
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.
