Avian Aqua Miser question

hen gifWhy did you choose a half gallon size for the Avian Aqua Miser?

Abe, New Mexico

I was trying to solve the freezing issue without running an extension cord to each chicken tractor.

The half gallon size is easy to carry and hang up once you've carried it inside for the night. Let it hang next to your coat and it'll be ready to go first thing in the morning. A full gallon would be bulky, especially if you're carrying more than one at a time.

A half gallon in the Avian Aqua Miser can give up to 5 hens all the water they need for the day. We make do it yourself kits for those with bigger flocks. Coming soon is a version for 5 gallon buckets that can service up to 50 birds in a day!<br
