Choosing a chicken drinker or waterer for hens is a crucial part of owning chickens. The chicken drinker container needs to be designed or at least suitable for your housing and the height of all hens. Ensure the chicken drinker is not easily knocked or easily tipped over by the chickens as water on the floor creates potential for disease or loss of water during a hot day may cause severe dehydration.

Ensure the water is accessible for all hens. Chicken drinker height plays a role in access to water and ensuring debris from cannot easily soil the water. Refreshed, well hydrated hens will drink up to 200ml of water per hen per day. Panting is a sure sign hens are not getting the required levels of water.

Chicken drinker varies in their features and operation, whilst achieving the same goal of giving fresh water with equal access to all hens. Chicken drinkers with a container or ball valve tank will enable you to add vitamins with electrolytes during those challenging times of year before Spring. Add ice cubes during Summer or worming solution in Autumn.
