Manual drinkers with stand are filled by hand and come in all shapes and sizes. We stock a wide range of both plastic and galvanised drinkers to suit most applications.
Manual drinker with stand work by using gravity to feed water into a tray. Any hens drinking from the tray reduce the level of the water temporarily; this allows air to escape into the water reservoir above the drinking tray; once the air goes into the reservoir, water is released into the tray filling it back to a set level. Once an equilibrium between the water the vacuum pressure in the reservoir achieved, no more water will leak into the tray until it’s removed again. Younger chicks can also make use of these drinkers as the regular drinker is well constructed to stay low to the ground for chicks to have access to water to drink.
Provision of water and feed to poultry birds is an integral part of poultry production and the practice is as old as livestock production itself, however, before the invent of drinkers and feeders optimal dispensation of food and water has been a challenge, the use of bowls and other containers were widespread, however, such practices weren’t as effective as a limited number of chicks have access to these sources at a go hence regular refuelling had to be done by farmers and producers of poultry birds to ensure all poultry chicks stay hydrated. However, with the invention of regular drinkers, the problem of regular refuelling and spillage of water was eliminated and a host of other problems.
They operate on a vacuum principle and have been designed to address many of the problems inherent in larger hopper drinkers. They are ideal for large flocks of poultry and game birds. They have sturdy carry handles and bucket locking mechanism making them easy to move around.
