Limited run of heated chicken waterers

Heated chicken waterer

It's that time of year again. The weather is cooling. The lights are on in the chicken coop. In other words --- it's time to think about winter watering chores!

Once again, we have a very limited run of premade heated bucket waterers available. Mark snags these buckets during his annual winter trip to Ohio so we won't have to pay shipping twice, making it cost-effective to install two nipples in the bottom and send them out for a hundred bucks with free shipping. In other words --- there may be another run in December/January, but otherwise this is all we'll be selling for the year.

Sold out!

Here are the stats:

  • 2 gallon volume with two nipples (sufficient for 34 chickens for at least two winter days).
  • Nipples keep flowing down to the low teens Fahrenheit and water in the main reservoir stays thawed much longer.
  • Comes with a lid with a knob for easy removal. (Your unique knob may or may not look like the one in the picture.) 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!). Your waterer should arrive sometime next week.
  • Cost: $100
Making a heated chicken watererDon't want to buy (or aren't fast enough and we've already run out)? No worries! You can make your own heated bucket waterer using the instructions here. No matter how you get there, though, you'll want to be prepared. Your winter flock needs to stay hydrated if you want to keep raking in those delicious, homegrown eggs.
