NEW FOR 2023! 100% Recycled Plastic Chicken Drinker, British Made by BEC. A 7-litre Gravity Drinker suitable for all kinds of Poultry.
This Combo Chicken Drinker is heavy-duty, made from 100% recycled material, and British-made - very tough, good quality.
The Combo-style Drinker is a dome-type drinker that twist-locks in place. Invert the dome container for filling, twist the base back on and then stand it upright again. It is most suitable for ground standing but can be hung up with the handle (bear in mind 7 litres weighs approx 7kg).
The dome water container is black recycled plastic and the saucer is dark blue so these darker colours can help prevent algae growth when placed in direct sunlight.
It comes with four black 7cm push-fit cone legs which raise the saucer off the ground and will help prevent the hens from fouling the water.
It has a plastic handle fitted, meant for carrying the drinker, but which can be used to hang the drinker up if necessary (please note that this may not work for all birds as some are prone to knocking a hanging drinker - trial and error may be needed).
7 litre Drinker max. dimensions: 37cm dia. x 33cm high (incl. legs) plus 7cm for the handle. Saucer is 5cm deep x 5cm wide and the edge stands 11.5cm from the ground, with legs.
Conversion: 7 litres is just over 12 pints (or 1½ gallons). Guide: 3 hens drink up to 1 litre water per day.
Simply fill the upside-down water container like a bucket, lock the base back on by twisting it into the container and turn upright.
Once the container is filled and turned upright, the water will find its level in the saucer - the vacuum principle - once the water covers the outlet hole the flow will stop because a vacuum is created in the container. The water will remain at a constant level until the hens drink some water, it is then replaced from the container.
Please note - these have a very tight-fitting base when new so do require a little force to lock into the base.
Standard delivery via courier is next working day to most mainland UK destinations for orders placed before 2pm (excl. weekends and bank holidays). Please note this may not always be possible at busy times e.g. after weekends and bank holidays.
Really impressed with this drinker, it’s a decent size and really sturdy once the legs are pushed on securely. The handle acts as a sturdy base whilst filling it with fresh water, easy to put back together. Looks good and easy to clean. Very happy with our purchase.
