New and improved heated chicken waterer

Heated WatererHeated chicken nippleLast year, the best heated waterers we’d seen for chickens were our own products. But we took some time off innovating and someone else came to the rescue.

The 2-gallon Farm Innovators Chicken Drinker uses a nipple designed to carry the heat of the water to the outdoors. According to their literature, chickens can keep pecking up clean water using this product down past 0 Fahrenheit, and Mark’s mom has reported good results at least into the teens.

We’re curious to hear from anyone else who might have given this new heated waterer a try. What did you love and what did you hate about Farm Innovators’ contribution?

To cut a long story short — the Avian Aqua Miser and EZ Miser are no longer available. If you’re having problems with your existing waterers, though, don’t despair. We’re just an email away and are glad to troubleshoot any issues you might be having:
