"Cap complaint "
I love this waterer alot but there is one major flaw. The cap is way too small. You can't get your hand in there to clean it. I just bought this and I know I'm going to have trouble with algae building up with no way to clean the inside. If they made the About 4 inches in diameter it would be perfect
This has made cold days a lot easier. The removable tray is nice but I still need to take the trays apart every few days for cleaning. My guineas approve and I'm not hauling water!
The flexibility to leave the base &' refill the 2.5 gallons is perfect. I bought 4 &' the quality &' convenience are worth every penny. No more frozen water!!!
Love to roost proof design, the ability to just pick up the reservoir and walk away to refill it, and for my flocks, the size. I posted in a local poultry group on FB about this fount and a few friends would like to see a larger capacity, I'll just add more if 1 isn't enough. I do plan to order 4 more heated and at least 6 of the unheated versions soon.
"Happy Chickens in -8"
Coming to you from a chilly -8 Wisconsin this morning, with a wind-chill of -26. Yet, I am happy to report I have some happy chickens. We have had this bitter cold for over a week now and I can attest to you the Thermo-Poultry waterer has been holding its own in stellar form. I have had zero freezing of water nor zero pieces of ice to be found. The sift ring is holding up brilliantly for removal purposes and the reservoir/cap have not had issues with the cold. How do I know my ladies are happy? Chickens require a certain amount of light and heat in order to produce eggs-usually 45 ̊ or warmer and 10 hours or more of light. Thanks to the Thermo-Poultry Water, the Thermo-Chicken and my dome lamp, I found eggs in my coop this morning. I have never had eggs during this cold of temps.
Although Jeffer's is my fav catalog, I returned is K&H Poultry waterer because it not only arrived with broken bottom and other cracks, I felt the plastic bottom was flimsy. The design seemed nice, but I was disappointed in quality. Also shipping box had a dent in the side. Still I would not think the plastic should have broken so much.
