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.

I love this waterer. It is a snap to fill and stays clean. There is nothing worse than dealing with foul water in the winter. We've had sub zero temperatures and it works like a charm. I only wish it could be hung but the listing is clear that you cannot hang it up by the handle.

Have been searching for a way to keep CLEAN chicken water available to peeps in the winter. Saw this one accidently and ordered it. I'm in love! Chickens haven't taken to it yet since they are not used to nipples but I keep working with them and know they will figure it out. I love this waterer because it keeps the water clean, unfrozen, holds enough for flock and is easy to tend. My lid fits fine and snaps on when I get it in the right position. I would recommend this to others but if your peeps haven't used nipples before, you might be over stressed. I would buy another and will probably switch other waterers over to nipples.

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.
