Chickens perform better when they have uninterrupted access to fresh water. That is what the Plasson Automatic Drinker for floor-reared chickens will help you achieve.
The Plasson automatic drinker is made from a rugged plastic made to stand the test of time in spite very active activity from chickens.
It is easily adjustable to meet the needs of growing chickens. It helps you ensure a constant water level and a dry floor on your farm. Once a bird drinks as little as 10 grams (0.3 oz.) of water, this highly sensitive and maintenance free system is activated.
Approximately 10 to 12 of the Plasson Drinkers are needed to serve 1000 adult chickens. In hot climates, experience shows that you might need 12 to 14 drinkers for 1000 chickens.
Adjust drinkers to the proper drinking height, always keeping the drinker lip a little higher than the bird’s back. The water pressure can be regulated with the pressure regulator.
- Check water pressure level if the litter around the bell drinker becomes wet. It might be that the water pressure is too high. This is adjustable.
- Keep drinkers high enough – ensure the lip of the drinker is slightly higher than the back of the chickens – on the average.
