Last year when I was raising the Wilson Phillips Girls, I came across a problem while they were still in the brooder box. They kept soiling their water!! And this really made me wonder what it was going to be like when they were out in the run with dirt, bugs and heaven knows what else! So I set out to find a solution to this problem.
I stumbled upon the website for Avian Aqua Miser. I was a bit intrigued by their product and watched their video and read the testimonials on their site. Ever since I met Michael, I've become a big reader of reviews and subsequently have become a bit of a skeptic when it comes to most things. But I bit the bullet and ordered their DIY waterer kit.
**Disclaimer**There is NO monetary compensation for me to give this review. In fact I contacted Anna at Avian Aqua Miser before doing this whole thing.
Okay, now that all that is out of the way I can get back to this post! If you know me you know that if I love your product I will go out of my way to buy it or tell others about it. But in the same breath, even if I love your product, if I don't feel like as the customer I'm treated fairly or in a good way I will go somewhere else to get the same product even if it costs more. (Case in point my whole Lowes fiasco)
When I received the DIY waterer kit, I went out and bought a few Rubbermaid containers to use as my "watering cans." And then I set off to drill the holes and install the waterers! This proved to be a bit of a mess for me, and it had nothing to do with the product, but I couldn't hold the Rubbermaid containers and drill at the same time! HA HA! But I got it done after a few tries. :) I filled the container with water and hung the waterer in the brooder box and waited for the magic to happen. Well it didn't happen. I was confused and wondered what I did that was wrong. I reread the instructions, and I quickly saw the errors of my way!
The instructions said to remove their current waterer overnight, then in the morning put in their waterer. The chickens at this point will be thirsty, and will naturally be attracted to the red "nipples." So I took out their waterer and in the morning did as I was instructed. And VOILA! It worked!! I could honestly not believe it!! And not only did they take to it like...a chicken to pecking ;-)...the transition to outside was a breeze because they knew what to look for!
Here is a pictures I just took today of Miss Chynna and Miss Wendy drinking from my Avian Aqua Miser Waterer!!
A few days ago I sent an e-mail to Anna at Avian Aqua Miser to tell her how much I love her product and that I would love to give away one of them! She e-mailed back and thought it was a great idea! So the contest is the RHOSC Chicken Photo Contest!
Click on the picture above for all the details on the photo contest: including how to enter, who can enter, when does it start and end!! I'm looking forward to this contest, and I hope that even if you don't have chickens, that you'll vote for your favorite pictures!! And if you know someone who has chickens, point them to this contest!!!
And check out Avian Aqua Miser!!!
