Q: What is a waterer?


A waterer is simply the vessel or system you use to provide water for your birds. Waterers may be basic and made from plastic or metal. Here is our best-selling chick waterer.

They may be designed for use with nipples or cups.

Heated waterers or waterers designed to accommodate bucket heaters are very handy if your temps regularly drop below zero.

For that matter, a waterer could be a large bowl or dish---but we don't recommend that, really. In general, you want a chicken's waterer to be difficult to topple over, and designed to keep scratched up bedding out of the water so it stays fresh, clean and healthy for your flock.
