The Dine A Chook Big Red Chicken Drinker with Twin Lubing Cups is so easy to use. Complete with rear moulded hooks, secure with the mounting kit supplied onto timber or steel. Once installed remove the lockable lid and fill with clean water. To test the lubing cup merely press the yellow float down, and water should commence filling the water cup reservoir. It takes birds very little time to work out this ingenious method of water delivery.
Thanks to the lubing cup and float engineering it helps keep the floor of your Aviary and Chicken Coop dry.
When the lubing cup becomes soiled, hose out with a hose, and it will be clean and ready to use in a jiffy. The pressure from a hose shall not damage the lubing cup or float. Our upgraded exclusive Dine A Chook float ensures that your chickens have water all the time as long as there is water in the unit. No mess, No leaks.
Mounting your Chicken Drinker
- This unit can be fixed to timber or steel using the mounting hooks or the brackets and screws supplied.
- Always position the Waterer so that the smallest bird in the flock can access the water.
- Consider a shady position as the water heats up if in the sun all day.
Also, something to consider, the average hen can drink up to 500ml per day. The volume of water consumption shall vary with the age of the bird and also the breed of the bird. It is always advisable for adequate hydration that you should consider a second waterer unit if your flock is greater than four birds.
How long will 4 Litres Last?
Allow 500ml of water per bird per day.
Example 1: 2 Chickens – One 4 Litre Drinker should last approximately 4 Days. Check-in 3 Days.
Example 2: 6 - 8 Chickens – One 4 Litre Drinker will need checking daily.
For flocks larger than 8 chickens you should purchase two to three drinkers. Ideally these should be placed around the coop or run in shady locations so chickens do not have to travel large distances to be able to access water.
