We regularly had customers asking us how to prevent a range of problems they were experiencing with their traditional style drinkers and feeders (and to be honest, we had the same problem with our chickens)... So we decided to design and manufacture our own sets! We soon had duck owners wanting a set for their ducks as well as their chickens, so now we offer this version with just one divider in the tray to allow for ducks' wider beaks.
Our drinkers 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 ducks drink from the red cup and the water level goes down, the valve automatically replenishes the cup. With traditional drinkers, you regularly have to change the water as ducks can get their water very dirty! Like us, ducks need a fresh supply of clean water. The drinkers holds approximately 1 gallon of water and are 20" tall.
Our feeders overcome the common problem of feed wastage. We used to have so much grain wasted by chickens who would scratch all their feed onto the ground in search of the tastiest piece of grain! This is a very common thing for chickens to do. The uniquely designed tray that forms part of this feeder, has special divisions which discourages the chickens from 'swiping' the grain from the feed tray and onto the ground. For the duck feeder, we remove two of these dividers, just leaving the central divider for ducks with wider beaks. The feeders hold approximately 6.5lbs of feed and are 20" tall.
This waterer and feeder set comes complete with a rain cover for your feeder, to keep your feed clean and dry in any type of weather. The added benefit of the rain cover is that it helps to prevent wild birds such as sparrows and pigeons as well as possums, squirrels and rodents from eating from your feeder. No one wants to feed all the local wildlife when they're trying to just feed their ducks! Many dollars are saved using these feeders.
These feeders and 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 waters and feeders simply hook onto the hardware cloth of your coop, 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 size cloth, you can simply attach the 4 brackets provided with your set to the hardware cloth with zip ties or wire and the set can hook onto these brackets rather than directly onto the hardware cloth.
BRACKETS FOR SOLID WALLS
If you want to fix your set to a solid timber or iron wall instead of mesh, 4 aluminium 'solid wall brackets' and screws have been provided with your set at no extra cost.
SLIMLINE, COMPACT DESIGN
A big advantage is that these drinkers and feeders 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 ducklings have hatched, they can use these drinkers. They are ideal for chicks or ducklings as they can't accidentally drown like they can in larger water containers. Just ensure you hang the drinker low enough for the ducklings to reach. The cups are valve operated so they automatically replenish when the water level goes down meaning the ducklings 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.
