It is very hard to get a good photo of the chickens drinking at their new Avian Aqua Miser waterer, but the first chicken on the right had been drinking and the second chicken on the right is still taking good long sip. What you cannot see in the photo are the little ‘nipples’ that work on a similar principle to a hamster waterer. The 5 gallon bucket has water and the chickens poke at the nipples that release a drop at a time into their little beaks.
We got our kit from the Avian Aqua Miser people and my husband installed the nipples in about 15 minutes. It took a little longer than that to teach the chickens to drink from this new waterer but that was our fault for not hanging the bucket high enough. Now everyone is happy. The chickens have clean water to drink and I don’t have to worry about them knocking the waterer over and then being thirsty all day long.
I bought the kit that contains three nipples and a drill bit, just the right size. I have not been paid for my comments. The company does not even know I am writing about this product, which I do recommend.
