This plastic fountain waterer is perfect for flocks of 10 up to 20 chickens (depending on size), and it is designed to be long-lasting, dent-proof and easy to fill.
The vacuum-sealing cap creates an automatic water flow. The rugged handle makes transport around the yard easy, and the jar snaps compactly onto the base.
One reason we have heard that people choose plastic fountains over galvanized steel is because the water is less likely to change in taste as a result of a plastic container. That said, we have seen plenty of chickens drink water from muddy puddles, so it’s not clear how sophisticated their pallet actually is!
