I set up the poultry hanger for my flock of 21 hens. I had a 5 gallon igloo water cooler on wheels, so I used that for the bucket. The igloo was thick- almost an inch thick when I drilled the 1/2 inch drill through. I bought the 1/4 inch adapter same time as the poultry hanger, but had to go to the hardware store to get an extension for the 1/4 adapter because the igloo wall was so thick.
The gentleman at the hardware store helped me and go the right copper adapter, and a silver metal one and more washers. I brought in the poultry hanger with me so he could see exactly what I needed.
It's working ok. I'm wondering at what point will the nipples freeze as autumn comes. I like the versatility of being able to set it up in the henhouse in the winter where it should be warmer. Right now it's hanging on the fence in their courtyard. I'm glad I bought it although in the hot summer afternoons they still like the pail of cold water. Early mornings and before bed in the evenings is when they use the hanging waterer.
Haven't used it yet
Haven't used this yet but it looks good and will be great if it works as advertised.
no other h2o er will do
Hey yall, This is the second one! My birds love them. Great product. Thanks again.
Chicks immediately find nipples and have no problem drinking. Saves tons of time not having to clean out water bowls/troughs and my birds always have fresh clean water. I have used the Tube Waterer for game birds, ducks and chickens. Great product!
Chickens like it
The chickens were using it minutes after it was installed. The only downside is finding the 1/4" nipple bulkhead fitting to connect it to the bucket. Wish it came with it. Also why the 90 bend to the valve? I'm thinking about cutting it off and adding an inline ball valve to make cleaning easier.
will be a repeat orderer
Very happy with waterer. Shipped here in five days! Great service.
