How to Use
Set the waterer so the nipples are just above head height—the birds should stretch up slightly to drink.
Handle is used to carry the bucket (unplugged) to and from a hydrant for filling. Some may find the bucket handle fits too loosely underneath the lid. For a better fit, gently squeeze the top of the bucket inward while attaching the lid. The lid will snap into place over the handle.
Chickens will take to the nipple drinkers more readily when there is no other water source available. We recommend removing your current waterer and placing the new waterer in the same location. Then, bring a bird’s beak directly to the nipple drinker and flick/activate the nipple to demonstrate the new water source.
Warning: Risk of electrical shock—Connect only to a branch circuit protected by a ground-fault circuit-interrupter (GFCI). Contact a qualified electrician if you cannot verify that the circuit is protected by a GFCI.

This waterer is a major improvement over others I have used. The chickens have clean water and my life became easier.

Product works as advertised. Clean water on the coldest days/nights. Something we’ve been looking for. Easy to fill. Well worth the investment.

This heated waterer has worked well for us thus far, although the really cold weather moved on just as soon as this was delivered (very quickly, I might add!). While the jury is still out how well it will perform in the extreme cold, I like that it is easy to fill & clean. I’ve not had any issues with the lid as others have mentioned, and have it sitting on a cinder block, tall side up. It’s a little low for the rooster, but perfect for the girls. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5, I’d love to be able to hang. All in all, so far so good.
