Heated bucket chicken waterer

making heated chicken waterer

We've still got a few high end heated chicken waterers left over from last year.

Could you use an EZ Miser kit on the same type of heated bucket y'all use, in order to avoid having to drill at an angle? Thanks!

Rae --- You could, but your waterer wouldn't work at as low temperatures as this version. Basically, the further the nipples are from the heating element, the sooner they freeze. So while this one is good down to the midteens Fahrenheit, an EZ Miser spout in a heated bucket might freeze in the twenties. (Just guessing on numbers since we haven't actually tested it out.)

By the way, in case anyone else is on the fence, these premade heated waterers have been going fast. By my count, we've only got three left now, so don't delay if you want an easy winter! :-)
