Item Information

This gravity-feed Little Giant Hen Hydrator provides access to clean water on demand. For best results remove all other water sources, and tap each nipple so chickens can see water dripping. Acceptance of this watering method may take time but once a few birds begin to use it, others should follow.

  • Translucent bucket is designed to provide UV-protection, prevent algae growth and allow for easy viewing of the water level
  • Lid fits tightly to prevent spills and protect contents
  • Easy-to-remove fill plug allows for refilling without having to remove the entire lid
  • Each of the 4 nipples can accommodate up to 4 birds
  • Hanging height will vary by breed but should be high enough so that chickens must reach up slightly to drink
  • Recommended for adult birds only and is not recommend for use in freezing weather

Little Giant Hen Hydrator is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 59.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not last Because the nipples are on the bottle I feel like everytime I put this on the floor it possibly damages them. We had so many leak issues with this waterer. It caused more problems them it was worth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Solution to Watering Chickens. I'm really surprised at the number of negative reviews. My sample had no leaks. True, the hens don't get every drop when they use it, but since I use it in a chicken tractor where there is always grass underneath, spilled water is not a problem. The birds took to it right away. It's a great advantage not to have run space taken up with the chicken's water source. It remains to be seen how long the semi clear plastic will last with UV sun exposure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok, but a couple of issues. It works, and is easy to fill. The chickens adapted quickly to the water nipples. It does have a couple of issues. The handle - it is a regular bucket handle; this makes it very difficult to hang evenly. The white handle cover needs to be removed, and it should have a bent portion the facilitates hanging. Watering - it will get water all over whatever is underneath. When the chickens use it, a lot of water covers whatever is underneath. We removed it from our hen house for this reason, and will just hang it outside somewhere. We do like how easy it is to fill though.

Should the spouts drip constantly? 

Asked by: Cbm7
Thank you for your question! Yes, it should drip every handful of seconds. This is so the chickens will see the water coming out and will learn how to drink from the waterer.

How important is the plug. It's lost. Does the unit need to be sealed by the plug in order to function properly? Or is the plug just for cleanliness?

Asked by: Joan99
The plug is for cleanliness but mainly as an easy fill opening without having to remove the lid.
