A 40 litre version of the popular Quill Outdoor Tank Drinker, a nipple drinker for all game birds from pheasants, partridge or ducks to poultry such as hens or turkeys. Available in two sizes: longer legs for Poultry and short legs for Game birds.
Ideal for use outside as the water is kept sealed to prevent contamination (and therefore disease) through bird faeces, bathing, general muck or from wild birds such as song birds poo, bathing or drinking. A great drinker for free range chickens including back yard chickens as well as rearing pens for game birds.
Did you know that birds do not have a swallowing mechanism? So when birds (whether game birds or hens) drink from open water, they fill their beaks and then need to tip their heads back to swallow. In doing this, a combination of water and saliva falls back into the open water for other birds to drink and therefore increases the chance of the spread of water borne diseases such as E Coli or Salmonella. By using a nipple drinker this does not happen, protecting your birds' health.
Fitted with our new 8 x 180 degree nipples, unique to Quill Productions. Fitted with a large pin designed to let water through when nudged upwards, the new 180 nipple keeps birds alert and engaged whilst reducing the risk of wet bedding.
