Rugged Ranch High End Hen Poultry Waterer is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seems like a good product, assembly not so great. We couldn't put the washer on because anyone who had an arm skinny enough to fit inside couldn't reach to screw the washer in, and anyone who had long enough arms couldn't fit their arm in. Even If I could reach, screwing a washer in with my finger tips and no line of sight would have been tricky. Not well-thought out assembly... Chicks like it so far, hopefully it won't start leaking without that washer. Reading Rugged Ranch response to poor reviews makes me wonder if someone needs to take Customer Service 101.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard to assemble Ours was defective and impossible to assemble when you have to stick your arm down the tube - my husband couldn’t even reach it. Not liking having to assemble

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Purchased along with the feeder. Easy to install and chickens found and figured out how to drink from it immediately. Very happy with the price and quick delivery. It’s great not having to stare down the roo just to add fresh water.

Our chicken run has much smaller screen openings (1/2" square) and we also have horizontal support boards that are 1-1/2" thick. So, we're wondering if we could attach a tube between the canister and water cup to thread it through the screen.

Asked by: designhead
If need be depending on how thick your screen is you can clip a small opening for the waterer. We've done that for our Raised Wood Coop #112 which has very small squares. The most important thing is that you have solid horizontal wood to mount the brackets.

Can this be used for rabbits?

Asked by: JoBlack
We've never tested it for Rabbits but this is a float style not pecking waterer. So I'm not 100% sure if the cup is big enough for the bunny to drink the water out of.

Is there any way to "winterize" this waterer?

Asked by: DJST
We are current working a heater for the waterer but have not been able to successfully winterize it.

Does the float automatically fill the cup or do the chickens have to peck at the float in order for the cup to fill?

Asked by: dpatt
The float auto fills the cup. When water level goes down, the float pushes the inner value to release the water until the fill level is appropriate then shuts off.

I have 8 hens, for pets & eggs.We have been using the "High End Hen" water & "so far so good". We will be moving the 8 week old chicks to their outside home soon and my question is: "Is one "High End Hen" enough for my 8 hens, in a 6' x 13' run?" Thanks

Asked by: LauraJean
If the chickens are already accustomed to sharing then it should be no problem. It's going to depends on the birds, as we have some people using 1 for 10 birds and others only 6.

The specs say it is 25 ft high by 5.5 ft long by 4.5 ft wide! Is this a typo? I am assuming it is and inches was meant not ft?  Product Height: 25 ft. Product Length: 5-1/2 ft. Product Weight: 3 lb. Product Width: 4-1/2 ft.

Asked by: Giud
Thank you for this information....the correct specs are 24" high and has a circumference of 4.5", I will contact Tractor Supply to correct.

How does the water tube attach to bracket and how many brackets are there? Is it a clamp that goes around the tube?

Asked by: Cheetah42
There are 2 metal brackets for attaching onto wood style coop and 2 plastic clips that gets screwed on the tube itself. As for the clips screwing onto the tube, location will depend if you will do a inside (back) mount or outside (front) mount.

How will this do in a New England winter? Do you recommend installation inside the coop? If it is outside, is it enough to have a water heater inserted inside the pipe?

Asked by: ketkoota
For the colder areas, I would definitely advise putting it inside to keep the water flowing. As the cup itself will be exposed to the weather if outside so the water is going to freeze.
