    Works great...except for the handle

    Review by on Oct 3, 2016

    I ordered these waterers against my husband's wishes. He just did not think they would work. Well....did I prove him wrong!! Now. he's frustrated since we have lost 2 of six buckets where the handle does not hold up. Tore right through the plastic and fell.

    Great product!!!

    Review by on Apr 7, 2016

    I made a waterer with pvc and cheap nipples from the local feed store that leaked constantly. This bucket works great and doesn't leak at all. The chicks at 5 weeks are using it and love it. But one...or two!

    Great product for CLEAN water!

    Review by on Aug 31, 2015

    This is just what i needed!
    My gallon water containers were filthy due to the chickens scratching all around them. This 5 gallon is the ticket, it stays clean!!!
    I hung it low enough for the biddies to reach it and noticed the hens crouching down to get a drink too. So now i raise it a couple chain loops as the biddies grow.
    I thing the ideal solution is to have two of these and set one higher for the big birds, one low for chicks or biddies. I'm not sure chicks can use it but will give it a try on the next ones hatched.

    It is tough, and seems to hold up to the Texas heat. My chickens are slowly warming up to it.

    This is awesome product. Others show concern about freezing (simply install a 75watt aquarium heater into it and the freezing problem is gone). Also if its too heavy for your structure, don't put 5 gallons of water in it. Try about 2-3 gallons. Problem solved.

    Chickens love to peck at anything including water giving shinny little things that reward with a drink of water.

    Good Solution

    Review by on Jun 18, 2014

    We have many chicks at various stages of growth in Five separate pens. We ran pex tubing to each pen with a shut-off and hung the tubs underneath so a separate tube went into the tub (like Tom, above, we drilled the hole to 1/2" to accept the pex. It takes about half the time to water the birds. They still love their big ground waterers but when they are empty they go right for the nipple waterers!! It took only minutes for them to get it. I call it the Filene's Basement Syndrome - if one does it, they ALL have to do it :-)

    These work great

    Review by on Jun 1, 2014

    I use one of these and they are great. I see someone said they can't use them in the winter. I use a small trough warmer in winter that fits down in the bucket. I just had to put a hole in the lid large enough for the cord. The water still stays nice and clean. One word of advice do not hang this in any area your chickens can roost over it or the tip will be nothing but a mess of chicken poop.

    Review by on Dec 26, 2013

    Has taken my chickens a few days to use it. has been two days and not sure if they have all used it yet so I still have another water supply for them, product works very well but the drippers do temporarily freeze up if it is really cold.

    Simple & Effective

    Review by on Jul 4, 2013

    Shipped quickly. I just laid a longer 2x4 over the corner of the chicken pen and used a rope to hang the bucket from it. I didn't find it necessary to show the chickens how to use it; they figured it out the same day. I'm relieved knowing their source of water is clean & that I don't have to worry about watering them every day since it holds 5 gallons. I like the idea Tom has about modifying a hose to make refilling easier, but refilling it isn't difficult.

    Review by on Apr 24, 2013

    This holds 5 gallons of water so the set up on this is tricky. You must have a strong roof and equipment to hold it in place. Also, if you live in a freezing snow zone, you can't use it in the winter. This needs to be rethought out. Haven't seen my chickens drink water from it yet.

    Review by on Apr 22, 2013

    Our chicks went to it straight away! I love the way the water keeps clean and I don't have to continually refill it. Super idea!!

    Very convenient--keeps water clean!

    Review by on Apr 21, 2013

    Quick to ship, nipples worked fine, just hang the bucket and fill with water. Be sure to show your chickens where/how to get the water, especially if they've not been using a waterer like this. They'll get the hang of it quickly.

    Ready to go out of the box.

    Review by on Apr 4, 2013

    Easy set up. Had my chickens drinking out of it within minutes. I modified the lid to accept a 5/8" hose that is permanently connected so refilling is just a turn of the faucet handle.
