Pros - Hold good amount of water
Cons - Cant hang and will freeze quickly
I had this in my chicken coop but would way rather the plastic one over this because this one freezes what to fast in the winter. Because it is metal, the cold will make the metal even colder freezing the water inside. When I came out to the coop every morning to redo the water, i saw a chickens whos comb got stuck on the ice makeing the comb freeze. I would not recomend this product. Get the plastic one.
Looks nice but impossible to keep clean. The anti-roost design is laughable. My hens stand on it and poop down the side directly into the water. I have to wash it out entirely every day, but realistically twice daily would be better. BTW, this is not intended to be hung, which is why the handle isn't designed for it. It states this on the label.
Pros - Metal construction, doesn't promote algae growth.
Cons - Cost and handle needs to be modified to keep it from slipping to one side or the other of the handle.
Have used them for years. Durable galvanized construction, doesn't have the algae growth that the white plastic waterers are prone to producing. They are a bit pricey though.
