This is an Edstrom valve, part of the autowater system for my rodents.
I have all the parts I need to make a 6 station/5gallon autowaterer for the chickens.
These valves are adjustable as to the amount of force need to operate.
They only real difference I can see between thse and the poultry specific ones are the shape.
The Pin is long enough, and if they are positioned properly, the chickens should be able to use these after some practice.
All my chicks are currently drinking from rodent lix-it(the ball-bearing type) bottles right now anyways . . .
Being able to give them 5 or even 10/15 gallons at a time will really save alot of time.
I have so many parts for this, it would be silly not to try.
Who is happy that they installed an autowaterer using any of the various available valves?
I know this saves me many hours a week on the rodent-rack.
