Best Automatic Waterer for heat


Jan 31, 2020
I’m going on vacation for a few days and plan to have someone stopping in on my quail once per day but I’m still scared they’re going to knock their water over and dehydrate in between visits. What is the best automatic waterer for quail? And also I live in Arizona so suggestions on keeping it cool and fresh would be awesome too. They’re in a ground pen.

I use these these with mini bungee cords to keep them from getting knocked over. During heat I'll take a 2 liter bottle and fill it halfway with water and freeze it. I'll fill the rest with water, which keeps the water cold for the rest of the day.
I also take 2 liter bottles filled 2/3 with water and frozen with caps on and put those into the pens with the birds for them to lean agains.

I don't know how well those would work over several days, though.
