A waterer provides a daily supply of water for your chickens. Indeed, in addition to the feeder, the waterer is an essential accessory for the well-being of your hens. Ducatillon Austria has selected for you a rich and varied range of waterers to satisfy your needs and those of your animals.
What are the different types of drinkers?
For the well-being of your chickens, and to keep them in good health, it is essential to provide them with a constant supply of water. For this purpose, there are different types of drinkers. First of all, the siphonic drinker is composed of three main parts. The bell, in which the water is stored, then a siphon that feeds the plate in which the water will be available to the hen. Thus, the upper part of the trough keeps the water clean. Another type of waterer is the automatic waterer, which provides a constant supply of water to the hens. Whether you are available or not, the chickens will have access to water on a daily basis.
In addition, this waterer stores water and keeps it clean and fresh. In the case of an automatic waterer, it is necessary that it is connected to a connection pipe in order to have a water source. The pipette drinker allows the distribution of water by the movement of the hen's head. The hen's head will open the pipette and allow access to the water. The bucket drinker is a bucket-shaped drinker that you fill and put in a horizontal position to allow the hens to hydrate. This waterer keeps the water clean. The bottle drinker allows you to feed the hens constantly for several days, and thus keeps the water clean. It can be fixed on a cage or any vertical surface.
You can find plastic or metal troughs.
Metal drinkers have a longer lifespan, due to their material, but also a greater weight. Therefore, the risk of tipping is lower. Moreover, depending on the weather zone in which you will use it, it can be a real asset (in case of wind for example). Its material makes it more robust and durable. Plastic waterers will be available for sale at a more affordable price. Moreover, given its material, the major advantage of plastic is the absence of rust. The plastic trough is generally transparent, so you can easily see how much water is left in it. Moreover, because it is so light, you can move it easily.
The ground trough
The floor trough will be an asset for the hydration of your chicks. It will allow direct access to water without effort. Ducatillon Austria offers all the necessary accessories to ensure that your waterer works properly. The hydration of your chickens allows the elimination of toxins and thus a maintenance in good health. The waterer must be accompanied by a feeder.
