No mess!!! Love it and easy for the chickens to learn
This is the best summer waterer I have owned. It does not leak and the size was absolutely perfect for a small backyard coop. The water stays fresh longer than I expected. It is cleverly designed so you can set it up on the ground or hanging, even coming with a cone top so chickens won't perch on it. It also has an extra nipple included.
This is a game changer! No more drips from a vertical nipple waterer puddling up to make a muddy mess... Water stays clean, it’s easy to refill & chickens took right to it. Excellent purchase. I have three & highly recommend it.
I've been very happy with my other waterers from RentACoop but wanted to get one that I didn't have to refill as frequently, unfortunately our seem to struggle more with this waterer. The metal pin needs to be pressed relatively straight in to get the water to release and the birds peck at it from all angles so aren't often successful in getting water out. At first I thought it might just be difficult for really young chicks but they're over a month old now and still don't really have it figured out.
Smart Design... no more messy water to change 3-5 times a day! The chickens figured out how to drink from the horizontal taps quickly and easily.
