Free Range Easy Fill Drinker, Design Flaw. An Updated Review

There is a problem with this drinker, I’m disappointed to report a major design flaw that needs to be addressed. I used this drinker for about a week and kept finding the tank full and the tray dry. This is a death sentence in Phoenix where temps are 110+. There isn’t a vent in the cover, causing a vacuum and therefore a stoppage of water flow. I drilled a couple of holes in the lid and now it’s working nicely.

I thought the Free Range Easy Fill Drinker was a good choice for our farm because it held 3.5 gallons of water, keeping it cooler longer when the temps are extreme. For the price, I expected more, and now it’s up $10+ dollars!

I won’t tell you not to buy this drinker, but be prepared to drill a few holes in the cover or you’ll find your birds without water.

FYI: I’ve contacted the manufacturer about this problem.

Banty Eggs

With the soaring price of eggs, I’ve never been so grateful for my little banty hens. Just look what they brought to the table this week!
Considering the rising cost of chicken feed, I’ve been supplementing their diet with healthy table scraps to stretch that bagged feed a bit longer.

Happy hens fill the egg basket
