5 Expert Tips for Using a Chicken Waterer Efficiently


Save More Water with These Simple Tricks

The chicken waterer from Chik’n Smart makes it easy to give your backyard flock a constant supply of clean water, but do you know how to use it most efficiently? Here are five tips that’ll help you save water and keep your chickens hydrated all year long:

  • 1. Keep the waterer clean: Regularly check your waterer for debris, and wash it out at least once a week with a mild soap solution. This prevents the buildup of bacteria, algae, and calcium deposits that can affect water quality and cause blockages in the spout.
  • 2. Use a larger container: It might be tempting to refill your waterer frequently with smaller amounts of water, but that actually wastes more water than using a larger container. A bigger container means less refilling, less water lost to leaks, and less spillage from your chickens’ pecking.
  • 3. Place the waterer in shade: Direct sunlight can make the water in your chicken waterer evaporate more quickly, especially during hot weather. Move it to a shady spot to keep the water cooler and reduce the amount of water you need to replace during the day.
  • 4. Add electrolytes to the water: Chickens need a balance of water and minerals to stay healthy and hydrated. You can add a commercial electrolyte supplement to your chicken waterer to promote good digestion, improved immune function, and better hydration.
  • 5. Use a drip irrigation system: If you have a large flock or you’re planning to go out of town, a drip irrigation system can save you time and water. Attach a timer and a dripper line to your chicken waterer, and control the flow of water to match your chickens’ needs. This not only saves water but also keeps your flock happier and healthier.

With these tips, you can make your chicken waterer work harder for you and your chickens, and watch your water bills go down. Got more questions about how to use your chicken waterer efficiently? Contact us for more tips and tricks. 🐔🌟yH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7
