Pros - Heavy duty, holds a lot of water, great interior handle - comfortable to carry, works with a heated base, easy to keep clean
Cons - Chickens love to perch on the top
Love it! I bought it this summer to use with a heated base during the winter, but the birds liked it so well that we’ve kept it out since we brought it home from Rural King and filled it up!
Pros - All metal well made
Cons - They like to jump on top of it and get dirt in the water but its not the waterers fault. Hanging would solve that problem.
Mostly picked this one over the plastic one because I was thinking ahead about the winter. Planning to put a warmer under it to keep the water from freezing .
Pros - Easy to fill and use. Water stays clean. Holds plenty of water for when you're going to be away.
Cons - Don't have any
Really like this. Wanted something that was easy to fill, holds a lot, doesn't leak and keeps the water clean. This does the trick! I also like the look of it since I have similar for the feeder and both have that farm look and work great! I didn't want plastic, which can crack in the winter plus I just don't like plastic and the galvanized was way less expensive than plastic ones
