Eight to 10 drinkers are recommended for every 1,000 birds.

Love it will try chain. Needed a little better instructions with it but I think it it ok. Maybe not exactly how they mean but some written words would help. Chicks love if and less work for me.
- what a work/hassel saver!!
These are a huge help! Chickens learned immediately and it saves us a boatload of time and work! Highly recommend!
- Great Waterer
I use these in pastured broiler pens and a movable eggmobile for laying hens. It is mostly trouble-free. Occasionally you will have to blow out the line if it gets clogged, but that is easily done by detaching the line from the bell waterer and blowing back towards your bucket, or other water source (or use an air compressor). Fill the ballast with sand instead of water and antifreeze. It is cheaper and you don't have to worry about antifreeze around your animals. Overall, a simple and effective system for watering poultry. I own 4 now and will continue to buy them as I need them.
- great product
this was my second one for the other side of my chicken coop. they all love it and don't have to go without water ever again. I set them up with a 35 gallon tank and now only have to add water once a week. I did hang mine with chain. now the only thing I need is a 12 volt heater to keep it from freezing in the winter months.
- great product
this is without a doubt the best most trouble free drinker I have ever owned. my chickens give it a two thumbs up.
- Great Product.
The drinker is AWESOME!! I did what others said and got rid of the sting and used a chain right off the bat. I used a 15 gal tank and I now my birds never run out of clean water.
- Great on pasture and brooder
I have reviewed this product in May on this site. Bought another 8 since. I use a gravity feed with 5 gal bucket on my pasture pens. I actually add two waterers to each pen because of the TX heat and also to have a backup when the chickens drink out the first 5 gal bucket. I agree with Dennis and use wire to mount instead of string. Cut included hose at an angle, drill hole in 5 gal bucket and insert to set up. Disassemble valve every 8-12 weeks and soak in bleach water to clean.
- What a relief
We are now saving lots of time moving chicken tractors. No more worrying about picking up heavy waterers or cleaning out dirt. Happily recommend these to fellow poultry enthusiasts.
- The best upgrade I have made for the chickens yet!!!
This broiler watering font works terrific!
The only improvement would be to ship with chain versus cord
I had to purchase a water regulator to reduce water pressure down to 3 to 6 pounds from the water hydrant
The broilers have grown more rapidly than ever with credit to this new water font!
Could not be more happy thank you!!!
- Couldn't be more pleased!
This works great and looks great! I couldn't be more pleased. Waters my 75 broilers perfectly! Quick delivery at a similar price to competitors.
Fast shipping, easy assembly, easy installation. Adequate instructions. Includes the black supply hose. I use it with an outdoor mobile broiler coop. I simply drilled a hole near the bottom of a 5 gallon plastic bucket (water reservoir) slightly smaller than the supply hose. stuff the hose in the bucket hole and it works like a charm.
- Best waterer...period!
Multiple reasons this is the best waterer to get. For pastured chickens keeps waterer off ground and cleaner. Saves time moving pen and not having to reach in a take out waterer. Chickens spill way less water and you have to fill the water bucket less often. Easy to set up, easy to clean. Clean with a toilet brush and rinse.
- great product
All I can say is awesome!
- Excellent Product
Worth every penny. Easy to put together. Makes watering the chickens extremely easy.
- Great product
All good, love these waterers
- Good product
I have now used these waters for 3 years and would not even think to get a different kind. I have never had a problem with one of the waterers themselves, but sometimes there gets to be buildup in the line or my water buckets leak. But, the waterer performs as promised each time. Well worth the money!
- Works Great!
Works better than the other brand of hanging waterer we tried before. Easy to set up and install. Good product. Highly recommend!
- excellent product
We have made the run around on automatic chicken drinkers. The Plasson Broiler Drinker is the best! Much better design than Kuhl bell waterers. Trouble free and easy to assemble.
Make sure you purchase the Saddle Connector for PVC installations. It does not come with the kit. Also, switch the hanging string for chain with a latch that you can move up and down as the birds age varies.
- like it
- great product-- needs instructions!
product works great! definitely needs instructions with it- I would not have been able to assemble it myself-- thankfully, my husband figured it out!
- Worked Great!
This drinker has made our first attempt at raising broilers so much easier! Easy to assemble...easy to maintain. I would recommend!
- Trouble free
Good trouble free drinker. The water flowing down the bell encourages birds to drink. Gravity flow is nice for all sorts of uses away from city water pressure. Suggestions:
Switch out water for sand as ballast. Switch the cord/string for hanging to something better suited like chain or higher quality braided rope as the one included frays going through the adjuster included with the drinker.
- needs instructions
Good once I figured out how it works. Manufacturer needs to include instructions.
