Avian Aqua Miser suits chicks fine

Last fall, Titus Blackwood emailed
me to ask if our
Avian Aqua Miser will work with day old
chicks.  “Well, I’m not sure,” I replied.  “But if you give
it a shot, can you take some photos and let me know?”

turns out that our automatic chicken waterers not only work with day
old chicks, they are vastly preferable to old-fashioned waterers. 
Titus raised over 150 laying hens on the Avian Aqua Miser, and
reports that she ended up with healthier birds than ever before. 
She was so pleased with the results that she changed all of her birds
over to nipple-based waterers.

“It’s easier to teach a day old chick than an older bird,” Titus
reports.  “And we’ve had significantly fewer pecking problems
since using the Avian Aqua Miser.”

Many thanks to Kristin

Ranch Alacrity and co-owner of Rocky Mountain Reindeer
for taking the photos. 
And of course, a big thank you to Titus who has since become an online
