I was only a partial believer and waited 2 weeks to put them out. when I did my 4 week old chicks took to the waterers within 2 minutes. I guess the chickens are a lot smarter than I am. A great product.

Thanks for commenting! The idea does take a bit of getting used to, but folks who try it do seem to become enthused. :-)

How do you keep the water from freezing when it gets Cold? I;m very interested but it is coming on winter now and I don't think it will be good to use until spring.

Hi there! My husband and I are intrigued by your chicken waterers, and are thinking of trying the bucket type, using our own buckets and your kits. However, he is concerned with using them inside in the winter, for fear they would leak and moisten the bedding, which is a problem we are always dealing with anyway. I have searched your site, and do not find this issue addressed in anyway. What can you tell me about that? Thanks!

Luana --- When you build a waterer using our do it yourself kit, you should get no leakage at all. The most you'll get is a drip here and there if your hens are messy drinkers and let a bit of water dribble down their necks, but that's not usual. In fact, keeping the floor clean and dry is another benefit of the Avian Aqua Miser.

Stacey --- We've got three different pages you might like to look at concerning freezing temperatures:

I'll bet at least one of those will work better for you than your traditional waterer.

We are very interested in the photo that shows a PVC pipe for watering. However, I'm finding no information which coincides with the photo. HELP! Thanks!

Thanks for your interest. The PVC pipe waterer is one of the variations you can build using our DIY chicken waterer kits. We don't have instructions on the internet, but the 34 page instruction file that comes on the CD with your kit will walk you through making the perfect waterer for your flock.
