by Melissa Caughey of Tilly's Nest

As most chicken keepers quickly learn, chickens love to soil their water.  From baby chicks to grown chickens, this is often a situation that causes concern.  Perhaps the biggest concern is the possible spread of diseases when chickens consume water that has been contaminated with various materials including droppings, soil, shavings and the like.  Finally, this issue has been solved.  Enter the Brite Tap Chicken Waterer.

If you are like me and keep a smaller flock, 16 birds and under, then this amazing product offers a simple solution to keeping your water clean.  Its unique insulated container design keeps the water cool in the heat of summer and tepid in the chill of winter.  It can be used by day old chicks and grows with your flock.

This waterer assembles in minutes and the chickens quickly learn how to drink from the nipples.  Once one flock member figures it out, the rest catch on quickly.  The Brite Tap waterer can be used with an array of various types of containers.  The possibilities are endless.  
The Brite Tap Combo Pack, that we are giving away, comes with the red cooler and the BriteTap waterer.

Here are some of the benefits of using the BriteTap Chicken Waterer for your flock:

•Complete watering system for as many as 16 chickens.
• Keeps water sparkling clean and hygienic. 
• Proximity to water tank prevents chickens from perching on top.
