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.

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.

Super easy to use and all you do is plug it in. I used a cinder block that I put the previous waterer on instead of the $6 bucket that you can buy. My hens came right up to the new waterer and I tapped then nipples with my finger until water came out and they instantly took to drinking out of it. Very easy and works great!

This waterer is so much better than the metal ones, or ones I have made myself. The thermostat is awesome. I wish it was made in a three or even five gallon size. I have a mixed flock of 40. Great product!

It is December in Chicago. Today's low was zero degrees. I checked my new Heated Poultry Waterer and it was working perfectly. My chickens were happy and hydrated. I've tried several options and this is by far the best winter option. Clean ice free water every day. Five stars. Thank you for the great product.

I purchased this waterer when it just came out and had no reviews yet. I was a bit hesitant, but was having so much trouble keeping my chickens with clean water over the winter months that I had to give it a try. I'm so glad I did, and wonder why it took so long for someone to come out with a heated nipple waterer. My girls have clean water every day and it's so easy to fill - I keep a jug nearby, fill it from a spigot and top off their water. The only problem I had was getting them adjusted to it from a bottom nipple waterer. For some reason they couldn't figure out that the water came out of the side. I took sunflower seeds and put them in the drip catch under the nipples and they finally started to use them. Great product, my chicken caretaking tasks are much easier now.
