EZ Miser: An even better chicken waterer

Miser: Bigger, cleaner, easier

Mark and I have been hard at work this summer developing a second-generation chicken waterer that makes watering your flock even easier.  At long last, the EZ Miser is ready to see the light of day!

If you're interested in the inventing side of the story, check out this post I made about the trial and error process Mark went through to create an even better waterer.  Or just go read about the EZ Miser itself.

I wish we could give away waterers the way we do ebooks, but that would break the bank.  Instead, for this first week, I've taken 10% off the price tag so that our loyal fans can afford to give the new waterer a try.

And if you leave a note with your order, I'll even throw in 20 Egyptian onion bottom bulbs (while supplies last).  I've been saving these bottom bulbs for a special occasion since they're more mature than the top bulbs I usually give away.  You can start eating the green onions from bottom bulbs nearly immediately --- just let the plant keep at least half its leaves at any given time.

We've had an EZ Miser prototype in our pasture for two months now, and I can't figure out how we lived without it.  I hope you love it as much as we do, and I'll be very grateful
if you spread the word so your friends can get in on the early-bird deal too!

just put 3 water buttons in the bottom of a 5 gal pail with the metal hanger on them you can hang with rope the height you need in barn or a tree or where ever you need it. tom

Tom --- We detail a lot of DIY options like that in the CD that comes with our kit, but I hear from a lot of folks that it's just too hard to make even simple waterers themselves. Thus the EZ Miser --- something that simply works for folks who don't have the know-how to do it themselves.
