Reasons why the Dine A Chook Chicken Drinker 4lt Single Lubing Cup is better:
It is a well-known fact, one of the main causes of disease spread in the chicken coop is contaminated water. If you use a trough or water tray where chooks can walk or climb on, the dirt, mud, as well as faeces, end up in their water. In no time at all, these particles become a bacteria soup. Likewise, algae in the water can also fast track bacteria growth. Also, a wet floor or mud caused by water spillage is another great way to bring illness into the coop.
The Australian Made Dine A Chook is made to tackle these issues. With years of research, the Dine A Chook was the first of its kind in the market and Aussie backyard farmers love it. We use ASA plastic which is more durable than PVC in the elements. UV treated, it helps prevent algae and mould growth in the water tank. The German lubing cup is made by the German company lubing, a world leader in poultry hydration. The lubing cup system stops spillage and water on the floor of the coop. It also helps prevent mud, dirt and other nasties ending up in the drinking water. We have also upgraded the cup float so your hens get more water in the cup. The system is automatic, so it fills the cup as the water level decreases.
Single Cup –up to 6-8 Chickens
Twin Cup – up to 12-16 Chickens
