Limited edition heated chicken waterers for sale

This is the time of year when we start getting a lot of questions about
heated chicken waterers.  If you follow the link in the last sentence, you can see all of the experiments we've made with heated waterers over the years.  Our favorite at the moment is the combination of a heated bucket and our 3 pack DIY Avian Aqua Miser Original kit (without drill bit), constructed as shown in the video above and good down to about 14 degrees Fahrenheit.

We liked this option so much that, last summer, we were considering turning it into a premade product available here on our website.  However, Farm Innovators wasn't willing to give us much of a cut on buying their heated buckets in bulk, and the price we were going to have to charge to make a profit after paying for shipping twice ($150) seemed too extreme.  So we opted to instead give the idea away to anyone who would like to make their own at home.

Making a heated chicken watererHowever, I've had several emails from folks saying that making their own heated bucket waterer following our instructions is just too hard.  Could we please sell them a premade heated waterer?  We do have ten heated buckets collecting dust on the porch, so I figured we might as well move them to new homes at a reduced rate.  So, until we sell out, you can buy a premade heated bucket waterer for $100 using the buy-now button below.  (These are only for shipment within the U.S., and shipping is free.)  I don't know if anyone will be interested, but it's possible these will sell out fast, so snap them up while they're available!

Edited to add: We sold out in the first 24 hours!  But Mark bought one more round, and as of October 2015 these are available here for a limited time. They're $100 apiece with free shipping in the U.S.

A few of you also asked if we thought our EZ Miser kits would be a good fit with the heated bucket.  I'm less keen on this idea since I think that having the nipple so far away from the heating element will make it freeze faster.  However, if you're only looking for a heated waterer good down into the 20s Fahrenheit, then this might be a good (albeit untested) option.  And we're willing to make your premade heated bucket waterer this way if you leave a note with your order (or email info@avianaquamiser.com afterwards).  I'll be very curious to hear your reports on how much cold an EZ Miser heated bucket will handle!

While we're talking heated chicken waterers, I'm always looking for new, innovative ideas to share with our readers.  Please drop me an email or leave a comment if you want to share your ideas!
