Plastic 1 quart waterer is constructed of heavy duty polyethylene. Screw on design makes attachment to quart size jar very easy. Great waterer for school projects and home use on new born chicks. Jar and base included.
Cons - Don't screw together well and falls apart. Get dirty very easily. Constantly have to refill. Small holes don't facilitate cleaning. Limited application.
This was the first waterer I bought when I started raising chicks. It was ok for about an hour when the first birds decided they wanted to crap in it. This design just consumes too much of ones time.
They also fall apart at times after you fill it up and pick it up without holding the bottom. Ive had just as many that don't as that do. I do not buy these any more. When I use them its only for the first few days of the birds life if absolutely necessary.
Pros - Great for chicks. I leave it in the yard during free range time. Easy to put inside coop house during bad weather.
Cons - Easy to tip over. Gets dirty quickly.
I bought this for my brooder and it worked great. Put it up on a piece of wood to keep the bedding out. First place they rooted on so got pooped on quickly. Definitely more for chicks or as an extra water source for hens. My he s enjoy knocking it over and making a mess with it if it's in the coop. I now use it out of the coop for free ranging water source and inside the coop house if we have bad weather.
