Out of Stock
Traditional drinkers have been used for centuries to give chickens a constant supply of clean drinking water. Fill the container on its side, then turn it upright. The water is held in place by air pressure and gradually released as the birds and animals take a drink. Useful in America near swimming pools, so the chipmunks, birds and other small creatures can get the water they need without falling into the pool.

Heavy unglazed terracotta.

Approximately 10" high, 5" diameter, 7 1/2" front to back, including water reservoir.

Love this thing. Using it for my hedgehog. Yeah, the intake hole is small, but that's a good thing, keeps out detritus. Just use something with a small spout to fill it, no problem. Very happy with this.
Owner Response: Hi Chris: Glad you like your Drinker. It's a very old, traditional design from Spain. They use them for chickens, so they don't get their muddy feet in the water. Another way to fill them, is to dunk them upside down in a bucket of water. The air bubbles up - and when it stops, your Drinker is full - good for a few days or more. Cheers ! Graham Kinsman

I have not used it yet as it has been raining but I am concerned about the small hole to fill the pot. I have a pool and have found many drowned ground squirrels and I am hoping I can get it filled and that the critters will use it. Until I actually put it in the yard and the weather warms up, I am unable to rate it.
Owner Response: Hi Tina, The best way to fill the Chipmunk Drinker is to plunge it upside-down into a bucket of water and let the air bubbles rise out of it, until it's full of water. It is a very old traditional Spanish design to allow chickens to drink water all day long, without them getting their dirty feet into it. And every time you do fill it, it'll be good for up to a week before you have to fill it again. Cheers ! Graham Kinsman

It's small, yes, but it's easy to fill and all the small and wild critters which visit my wildlife sanctuary easily find it and drink from it. More, it looks good. Recommended!


Cute

I had one of these many years ago but it was a two piece jar. The top came off the water basin so it was easy to fill and it was larger. This one is tiny, it's one piece and there's only a tiny hole to fill water. Would not recommend.
