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.

I bought the first one, a couple months ago. Went back and ordered another. I use nipple drinkers, and they were always freezing, but the interior was fine. My entire flock adjusted to the sideways nipples quickly, even my ducks. The thermostat is a life saver. Glad they were in stock this year!!!! Best I have ever seen!!

We have had sub zero temps and it works perfectly, water is clean and defrsosted, BUT, we have had it for about 2 weeks and my chickens won't drink out of it, I have showed them the nipples, (they have a different one in the coop they use) and the ducks can't drink out of it because of the little lip (they drink out of the nipple bucket in the coop). I am hoping they will eventually get used to it, but I do use the lovely fresh water to fill the other electric dog bowl I had to buy.

Lid doesn't fit chickens nock it off. All it is is a dog bowl with nipples. Can make it yourself. Way too expensive.

Finally, a waterer that's worth its cost. Easy to fill,birds have clean water, and it's been proven not to freeze at -10degreeF. I highly recommend this product.

We really like Premier1 products and use them daily on our small farm. However, I am not sure how to rate this waterer as it is a good idea, but does not work for our farm. Our six year old TSC heated waterer was damaged during our move to SC. Since the previous waterer was a pain to fill, we thought we would try the more expensive Premier1 waterer. I ordered it in plenty of time for a forecasted cold snap. The USPS encountered "delays" so the waterer did not make it in time. (If you need something on time, please choose UPS shipping). Since receipt, we have not been able to "train as suggested" our 16 hens and rooster to drink from the waterer. The chickens would rather make the trip to our goat paddock to drink from their heated bucket which is now getting soiled.
