  • Horizontal nipple drinker - Yellow (2 pack) Horizontal nipple drinker - Yellow (2 pack)

    Yellow Horizontal Nipple Drinker |Twin Pack

    Birds learn quickly how to use this system. Transform any standard bucket or PVC pipe into a poultry waterer. Nipple only releases water when activated and this results in better hygiene & less cleaning. Unlike traditional drinker nipples, these horizontally mounted nipples are spring-loaded so that they work without a gravitational pull. The action of the birds pecking wobbles the spring, which releases drops of water either into the bird's beak or collects into the moulded drip guard beneath the nipple. Easier cleaning! - The advantage of side-mounted drinking nipples is that the drinker can be placed on the ground or on a flat surface for cleaning and refilling etc. Supplied in a 2-pack with instructional header card.                                                                      Tips for training chooks onto nipples.

    Out of stock

    This drinker fits below a bucket or a container with a thick base. We recommend approx. 1 drinker per 2 to 3 chickens. (e.g. a flock of 6 hens will require approx. 2 to 3 lubing cups). The drinker works on a similar principle to nipple drinkers, although is designed for use specifically for poultry and game (not rabbits or mischievous parrots that like to chew). The device requires a low-pressure gravity feed supply via a header tank, drum or bucket. (no greater than 400mm of head). Alternatively, the cups can be attached directly to any container with a reasonably thick base so can be drilled and threaded. The drinker has a tapered thread, so will self tighten as threaded into your container.

    Use this one if you need to fit it through a wire cage or mesh coop. We recommend approx. 1 drinker per 2 to 3 chickens. (E.g. a flock of 6 hens will require approx. 2 to 3 lubing cups). The drinker works on a similar principle to nipple drinkers, although is designed for use specifically for poultry and game (not rabbits or mischievous parrots that like to chew). The device requires a low-pressure gravity feed supply via a header tank, drum or bucket. (no greater than 400mm of head).  The elbow is designed to fit the drinker through a wired cage or meshed coop which is easy to install with the supplied locking nut.   The size of black pvc hose required is 10mm to adapt your drinker system to your coop or aviary. Alternatively, the cups can be attached directly to any flat-sided container. Available in green only.

    Easy to fill. If you've expanded your flock, you can make sure there's plenty of water for everyone with the new Eglu Cube Drinker. The large openings make it easy for chickens with even the most extravagant bouffant to take a refreshing drink, and even easier for you to refill.  The Cube Drinker works well as a waterer for large breed rabbits like Rex and Flemish Giants. You can even refill the Drinker with a hose pipe through the run without having to reach inside. Made of hygienic, easy to clean plastic, the New Eglu Cube Drinker attaches to your run with strong steel clips. The capacity of the Cube drinker is 4 litres when placed on a vertical run panel such as the Eglu Cube or Walk in Run, and 3.1 litres when placed on an angled run panel such as the Eglu go. Dimensions: 17cm high by 18cm wide by 35 cm long Also fits the Walk-In Run and Runs for the Original Eglu Cube Mk1, Eglu Go and Eglu Go UP.

    We are no longer stocking the Eglu Go Drinker. Please check out the Cube Drinker. The Eglu Go comes with a drinker as standard. These drinkers clip securely on the run. Depending on the number of chickens in the flock it may be necessary to purchase additional drinkers. It is also worth holding spares for when it is extremely hot or cold. Works well as a rabbit drinker for large breed rabbits like Standard Rex and Flemish Giants.

Rooster with 18L bucket drinker

Selecting the right drinker/s for your chickens and poultry area is worth doing. Using purpose-built poultry feeders and drinkers will save time, energy and money in the long run and keep your chooks happy and healthy. Expecting your chooks to drink out of an old dirty bucket is not going to get the best production from your hens or make your daily chores a pleasure. Buckets of water 'green up' pretty quick and get easily tipped over. Having a reliable, fresh source of water available at all times is key to good health and good egg production. Chooks drink lots of water and they like it clean (just like you!) We have some great drinkers available.
