    5/5,
    "It's great!"
    Pros - Water stays covered and fairly clean.
    I use it as a secondary water source for my flock. The only problem I've had with it is when the water freezes you cant open it to help the water thaw. Very sturdy though, I tried beating on it with a hammer to dislodge the frozen lid/cover.

    4/5,
    "Love it!"
    Pros - Doesn't leak, easy to fill up and keep clean. Keeps water cool even in the summer heat.
    Cons - A thin piece of metal attaches the top to the bottom. It bends very easily making it hard for the container to stay together when carrying it.
    Holds a good amout of water, is easy to clean and fill, water doesn't get very dirty. If placed in the shade it seems to keep the water cooler then a plastic container even in the summer. The main con is the thin piece of metal that attaches the top to the bottom always seems to bend shortly after I get a new container. When this happens it's harder to carry because the bottom falls out. It's also a little harder to tell when the water is getting low from a distance. I have to check mine regularly to make sure my hens don't run out. Besides that I love my container and will continue to buy more of this type.
    Overall:
    4.5

    I have a 2 gallon now in with my 3 week old chicks.
    I placed it up on a platform along with the feeder.

    With the deep fill of pine chips, the chicks drop them in the waterer. I just pick it up by the top handle and move it outside and tip it sideways and clean it. There is still plenty of water for another day.
    Then it gets changed every two days. Comes winter and the birds are bigger, there's to be a 5 gallon sitting on a heater in the coop.
