How do you keep chickens from chewing/pecking the cord?
Answer by ChewyJun 26, 2019
Generally, chickens would peck at anything. Some chickens might leave the cord alone, while others might peck at it. One option to hide the cord is running it through a PVC pipe.

Is this battery or electric?
Answer by ChewyJul 19, 2017
This product is electric.

Will the water in the tank freeze?
Answer by ChewyJan 08, 2018
The water will not freeze if used as directed.

Is there a convenient way to hang the waterer? I have found keeping the waterer above ground level keeps the birds from getting dirt in the water
Answer by ChewyOct 30, 2018
This waterer was designed to be used on a hard level surface. For safety purposes, we do not recommend hanging this product.

Long lasting holds up to most cold

I have used this waterer for many years now. It started to freeze up this week as the temps dipped below zero. Last night was -45 with wind chills and while the water tank was partially frozen and I had to chip ice out of the ring the very lower parts were still liquid and once I removed ice it started flowing again. I highly recommend as this has made life a lot easier.

Keeps water from freezing

This is a great design for keeping the water from freezing, and for ducks, the strainer insert is a great invention. But the cap leaks. Not from the small cap that pops open when you invert it to put it on the dish, but around the threads. The jug opening isn't flat, and the silicone gasket is far too narrow to be useful. And because of the shape of the jug, and the weight of 2 gallons of water, it's nearly impossible to carry when full without leaving a drip trail through the house and outside. You also cannot put it down once its full, without a steady leak from the cap. I'm also concerned about the feasibility of cleaning it when that becomes necessary, but I haven't had it that long yet.

Heated Chicken Waterer

Seems to be pretty good quality. I'll report back after freezing weather sets in.

Works so well

I love that I can fill it and seal it, then carry it to the chickens. Our ones before this were so hard to carry without getting water everywhere, & on your pants, as you slip in the mud or snow on the way to the chickens. The little rubber seals on the metal ones never worked. The red and white ones you carry upside down & spill it down your front while trying to balance it, or right side up and it splashes out on your legs. Then you have to fight the cord to put the bottom on and flip it over. None of that with this. Only thing with this one is the little screen doesn’t do much, but we never had anything like that on the old ones anyway.

The H-T-W works as expected. I have it set up in the corner of two indoor flypens. This allows both flocks of pigeons to drink from it. It has kept their water unfrozen in -0 degree temps as I live in Wisconsin. I really like the water tank as it is easy to fill, carry and flip with little water spillage. The only negative is that the tray is too wide. This really allows too much liter and droppings to fall into it. A narrow-er tray would prevent it. Fowl could still drink from it- so there is no need for such a wide tray.

Keeps water from freezing

This is a nice waterer for the chickens. It definitely works at keeping the water from freezing. When I opened this and went to set it up. The little plastic plug that keeps the water from flowing out when setting it onto the base, was ripped. So that's the only thing that was wrong with it. It's not a big deal to me. I can set it onto the base quick enough without it spilling everywhere.

Best one I have tried in years.

We haven't had a serious cold but so far it has worked great out in my run in the below freezing we have had (nothing below 20º as of yet, located in Central IL). I like that the water does not spill out all over when putting tank on base, and it says place on level ground but as long as its close enough it does leak over the sides. I did not give it 5 stars because I feel that the cover for the water tank is rather annoying to line up and close properly so it fits right with out stripping the groves. I have about 25 chickens and fill it ever other day.

Does the job

Quite expensive for what you get. The plug is very flimsy. The threads to screw the cap onto the tank are poorly formed plastic. the removable tray is a nice idea, but it still needs to be cleaned out. One hard tap on a below freezing day and I can see it cracking. Water out all day has not frozen so far, so in the end it is good for its intended purpose. I take it in the house in the evening and clean it for the next day. Has cut down on trips to the coop to check the waterers throughout the day.

Pretty much garbage

Have had this waterer up and running less then a month and the water in the ring and tank are frozen solid. Great product....

leaks on third refill

I'm super bummed. I've had this for 10 days and it leaks all the water out as of today. I read some similar reviews and I just want to warn shoppers. My freezing run is now full of ice from this waterer leaking out a gallon of water.
