How to use a Dine A Chook Chicken Drinker 4 litre with two Lubing Cups

There is nothing simpler than using a Dine a Chook Drinker:

  • Mount to timber or steel
  • Remove the lid
  • Fill the Unit with fresh water
  • Press down on the float and water will commence filling the Lubing Cup reservoirs

We recommend rinsing the Lubing Cups out with water whenever you refill the Drinker reservoir and cleaning them every few months. This way, your Lubing Drinker Cups will last for years!

How to mount the Chicken Waterer

  • This unit can be fixed to timber or steel using the mounting brackets and screws supplied
  • Always position the Waterer so that the smallest bird in the flock can access the water. The Drinker should be at around eye level for your chickens.
  • Consider a shady position as the water heats up if in the sun all day and chickens don't like warm water

Also, something to consider, the average hen can drink up to 500ml per day. The volume of water consumption varies with age, breed, diet and temperature. It is always advisable for adequate hydration that you should consider a second waterer unit if your flock is greater than four birds.

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.

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. 


You can use this Chicken Drinker as a:

  • Turkey Drinker
  • Goose or Geese Drinker
  • Duck Drinker
  • A large aviary drinker for Quail, Pigeons and Budgies

Care and Maintenance

Be sure to rinse the Lubing Cup under running water weekly to keep it in tiptop condition and to clean it every few months. Instructions for how to clean a Lubing Cup are available here. This Cup will last many years if looked after.
