Stoneware Chicken Waterer
- Online Only
Our two-piece chicken waterer is modeled on a vintage design used on farms across America in the first half of the 20th century. An opening near the bottom of the crock allows continuous refilling of water from the upper crock as it depletes from the rim of the saucer below. The thick stoneware helps moderate water temperature, keeping it cool in the summer and from freezing in winter. To fill the “fountain,” simply invert the upper crock, fill with water, cover with the upside-downs saucer, and then swiftly invert both pieces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rela from Works, but could be better This is a good, heavyweight waterer. However, it is difficult to turn over without spilling water, either on yourself or on the ground. Also, it would be a more effective waterer if more water flowed into the saucer section. Despite these issues, I like these water devices. The ceramic is easy to clean and the jugs are good quality and made in the U.S.Date published: 2014-08-25Rated 1 out of 5 by Nique from Very Disappointing - Doesn't Do the Job When the chickens drink the few ounces of water that are in the tray, the water does not flow out of the reservoir, aside from the fact that the hens have to turn their heads sideways to drink, since there is such a small area to access the water. Poorly designed and made. It can't be that hard to make a waterer that flows properly since the plastic manufacturers do it consistently. I was so disappointed with this product as I wanted to stop using plastics, but I can't leave the chickens all day with an ineffective waterer that doesn't provide a consistent water supply. I wanted to support an American ceramics manufacturer, but the quality is poor. I tried two of these waterers, both with the same problem. Considering the cost, these should work perfectly. I thought Williams Sonoma sold quality goods, but that's not the case here. AVOID and save yourself the grief.Date published: 2014-08-15Rated 5 out of 5 by PamelaMK from Very pleased I am really happy with this waterer. It is a nice light cream, almost white color and is very smooth and easy to clean. I don't like plastic and my metal waterer started rusting so I decided to try this. Very happy that I did. The best thing is that my hens absolutely love it! Made me happy to see their excitement and how easily they can drink from this waterer. Highly recommend.Date published: 2014-02-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Sobie from Beautiful stoneware waterer. This is exactly what I wanted. It is beautiful and made from a natural material. Based on the two different pictures of this waterer on the website, I was not sure what it would look like. One photo shows a dark cream color with a pitted appearance. The other photo shows what looks like a brighter white with a smooth exterior. The one I received is a gorgeous light cream with a smooth finish. It is a little awkward at first to turn it over while holding the dish onto it. A little of the water did spill out. That is to be expected with this design at first, but you get better with practice. It is similar to a chick waterer that uses a Mason jar. The major advantage of this waterer is the stoneware material. I do not like to use plastic or galvanized metal for health reasons. Another big advantage that lead me to choose this one over another stoneware waterer on the market is the two-piece design that will be very easy to clean.Date published: 2013-08-09
