Appletons Easy Care Drinker




Appletons Easy Care Drinker

This heavy-duty drinker holds just a little less than a whopping 20 litres of water - 19.8L to be exact! (this drinker is not an auto drinker but listed here as holds a decent amount of water) Ideal for using in your chook run or bird area - we have a few strategically placed around and the chooks, ducks, pheasant, peacocks and guinea fowl all use them. We just fill and leave and the chooks soon learn where the water source is. We rate this as our best drinker.

  • Easy to rinse and refill.
  • An ideal all-weather heavy-duty drinker that will last the distance.
  • The beauty of the dark colour is that it stops light from getting in preventing green growth due to sun exposure that happens in most other drinkers.
  • The water stays fresher for longer reducing any potential worm burden.
  • Saves time.

Dimensions: 34cm x 32cm by 32cm. NZ made of polyethylene with stainless steel wire handle. Rotationally moulded and hand-tooled. Does not have a machine finish.

How to Fill  💧💧💧
1. Tip drinker onto its back.
2. Best to use a garden hose and push it into the opening and fill up until water overflows.
3. Pull out hose and sit drinker back on its square base using the handle.
4. Water should be visible in the trough all ready for chooks to enjoy a drink.

Excellent product - very happy with it.

Happy hens … happy humans!

Our girls love their new drinker and the water stays so much cleaner and fresher.


This is a sturdy drinker, with a narrow, lipped trough that makes it harder for the chooks to foul the water. The dark plastic means it is more resistant to algal growth. Ideally it should be filled in situ as it is very heavy when full. If I had a hose connection nearby I’d try an automatically refillable one but this works very well
