Limited edition heated chicken waterers
In the summer of 2013,
Mark and I were seriously considering bringing a heated chicken waterer
to market. Mark had constructed a waterer that kept working at least
into the low teens Fahrenheit, and we both thought other chicken keepers
would love the waterer as much as we did.
Unfortunately, not all products are worthy of going to market. The base of Mark's heated chicken waterer was a two-gallon heated bucket produced by Farm Innovators,
and we weren't able to get them to sell us the buckets at a low enough
price to make it worth our while to produce the heated waterers and then
sell them to you for under $150. So, we instead made a video tutorial showing you how to make the heated waterer yourself, then we moved on to the next project.
But we kept getting
emails from customers who said that making their own heated waterer was
just too hard. Could we possibly sell them a premade heated chicken
waterer...just one? This fall, we cleaned off the porch and realized we
had fourteen heated buckets taking up space, so we did a limited edition
run and sold out in 24 hours.
People kept emailing and
asking for heated chicken waterers, but a second limited edition run
didn't seem possible because the company now wasn't willing to even sell
us the buckets at the slightly-reduced price they'd offered earlier. Enter my awesome mother-in-law, who tracked down the same heated bucket on sale at Rural King and bought up a carload.
To cut a long story
short, we now have seventeen more premade heated chicken bucket waterers
ready to keep your chickens happy this winter...and this really will be
the last run for the winter. So snap up your waterer below ASAP!
Here are the stats:
- 2 gallon volume with two nipples (sufficient for 34 chickens for at least two winter days).
- Comes with a lid with a birdcage knob for easy removal. In
addition, brackets within the bucket prevent your lid from falling in.
- Free shipping within the U.S. (We can't ship these out of the
country at all --- sorry!). Shipping time is approximately 6 to 10
business days, so order by this weekend if you want your waterer by
- Cost: $100
