Giveaway: Brite Tap Chicken Waterer

Yes, it is true!  We are giving away another Brite Tap Chicken Waterer from our sponsor,!  Chick season is upon us and this is a great option for those of you who are just getting started.  I cannot think of any other chicken waterer that grows up with your flock as this waterer does!

You can teach your chicks to drink from this waterer from day one.  As they grow, it is simple, all you have to do is raise the height of the waterer.  My flock loves drinking from this waterer and the best part is that the water stays clean all day long.  It is easy to refill and fun to watch the chickens drink from below.  It did not take my adult flock long to learn how to use the waterer.  Who says chickens aren’t smart? Or maybe it is because this waterer is so simple.  Either way, this is a wonderful option for those of us with smaller flocks.  To see more of its great features click here.

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.
• Set up in less than two minutes. No special tools are needed.
• Insulated cooler keeps water cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
• Clear plastic design & clean out plugs make it easy to access the interior for cleaning.
• Works for baby chicks, chickens, ducks and other small fowl.
• Side mounting position of valves allow you to place waterer on a flat surface.

    A Brite Tap would be wonderful for our growing flock! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    Looove it!!! We've found that our Serama babies are lil pigs in the brooder box, making HUGE messes, especially in their water. This waterer would help keep the messes to a minimum!

  • My reason is – I just want clean water! Thanks. I would like to say I really enjoy your blog and seeing the chicken of the day photos FB.

    I have 4 chicks coming may 7th! I think keeping their water clean would be SO EASY with the Brite Tap waterer. Then when they join the rest of my flock, I bet they will all love it!!

    This would be amazing to win for my flock. I know my girls would just love it! Thanks for this fun giveaway :)


  • Wow, that is a great idea! It would save me a lot of effort if I had one.

  • Keeping fresh cool water available for the girls is always a problem during the summer months. A Brite Tap would be a great way to ensure the girls always have fresh water!

  • David McPherson

    Nipple watering systems are the easiest way to keep clean fresh water for you home flock. NO more daily cleaning and scrubbing and you can actually leave for a short trip without having to worry about fresh water for the flock.

  • I just started following your blog a few days ago :) We've been trying to get our coop together in order to get our first ever baby chicks next month! This would help immensely in cutting down the initial start-up costs! Thank you for the chance to own this unique watering system :)

    ps. Say hi to the Cape for me :)I'm from Orleans originally and miss the ocean terribly!

    I NEED a brite tap! I'm in hot hot hot Phoenix, AZ and I think the cooler style of this waterer will help to keep water temps down for my silkies. Their waterers get so hot in the summer, I have to add frozen water bottles to them just to get the water to luke warm. EEEP!

  • We Would Love this. We already use homemade nipple drinkers but with this being insulated it would be great for the really hot days and the really cold since we get both extremes where we live.

    Our family is just in the process of building our 1st coop and this would be great for our new feathered friends! :-)

    This sounds like a great idea. The water would stay clean and the pen area would not get so wet. Thank you!

  • We are getting our first chicks soon! This would be perfect for our 4 girls!

    Our coop is not located near a convenient water source, so we are always carrying it to keep them in clean water. Would love to try this! Thank you for the chance!

  • I made a DIY nipple waterer, but this one is so pretty. I would love to have this new one for when I redecorate my coop! It would make things just that much nicer! I love the clean look of it.

    This is great! It would keep the water clean while being able to be chilled with ice for hot weather.

    I just dumped an inch of sludge from my chickens' water bucket. Thanks to our freezing/warming cycle, it's a nasty mess out there! Our heated base isn't working so I've found it's easier just to rotate open buckets and change them out as they freeze or to refresh – whichever happens first. Can't have hoses connected outside yet so I'm carrying frozen poopy/muddy buckets in the house to clean and refill. With this waterer we could carry clean buckets of water outside to refill the waterer! Not sure who would love this more – me who is constantly bleaching the kitchen sink, my kids who help with chicken chores or the chickens!

  • I have been wanting to try this style of waterer for some time. love that it is insulated. I spend sooo much time once it gets warm changing out or adding ice to their waterers. Thanks for giving one lucky a person a chance to get it free!

  • Chelsie Mullett

    I'd love to win this waterer. I'm looking to start a coop soon so making my list of supplies needed.

  • It gets so darned hot here in NC during the summer. I know my girls would appreciate a cool drink from this waterer!

  • I would love to win this for my parents to help make watering & medicating his flock cleaner & easier while saving water!

    Oh how awesome this would be for our Florida heat. I would love to be able to keep my girls water cooler in the summer. ~ Carissa

  • We are in the process of finishing our first chicken coop for my 7 year old twin boys! They are so excited to finally be getting chickens after wanting them for a couple years! This waterer would fit perfectly and also look great!


    One of these would bed really beneficial for us! I just bought 10 water nipples but this would put anything I make from scratch to shame!

  • What a great giveaway! My chickens would love this and it would save me a lot of trouble and I love that it's insulated.

  • We are just getting started on our chicken journey and would love this for our new flock! Thanks for offering this great give-away!

    Thank you for such a wonderful offer!

  • Sweet Waterer. Love the fact that you could open up the top and dump in a huge block of ice on a hot day and give them cool water to drink all day long.

  • Fantastic giveaway! My girls would love it almost as much as I would. :-)

  • This is a great product! I have one but need another!

  • I NEED the Brite Tap for my chickens! My waterer is so confusing you can never tell when the base is open or closed. They will sometimes they go all day with no water if we're not careful to check it (especially after the kids have changed their water). :-( Russel and his girls, Missy, Sissy, Prissy, Shelly, Cinnamon, Georgie, Ginny and Caroline would SOOOO appreciate it!

    I'm tired of trying to keep the water clean in a regular waterer. How great to have no bedding or dirt in water and no spillage of water.

  • Ohmygosh – What a great watering system. I love watching the chickens play in the water, but they make such a mess of it. This will give them a constantly clean supply of water. LOVE!

  • Oh, I would love to have one of these to put in the "broody closet" this Spring with Millie and her chicks!!!

  • Stephanie Gibson

    This could definitely make my life easier! What a great idea!

    this is such a cool waterer! Never saw it before! I'm thinking it would save on having messy water and waste! My chickies say they would love to have one!

  • wow – this is super cool – really need to think about converting our girls to this system.

  • this is such a great idea, i'd love it so that my girls always had fresh water. the waterer always seems to get icky within moments of washing it.

    My Royals @ Cluckingham Palace would be the richest flock EVER if they had this super cool waterer… it's certainly fit for the QUEENS!

    I use a metal fountain, and while it works, it needs to be refilled frequently. I also find it kind of clumsy. Chicken nipples (tee hee!) would be so much easier.

  • This will work for the coop, once we build it. Still planning.

  • I saw this when you posted it before and loved it. My flock could always use another water source as they like to roam!


  • Such a great idea! There's nothing quite like fresh water to drink and I am constantly changing my flocks water since it gets dirty and poopy at times. Hope I win!!!

  • What a great idea for a waterer! I would LOVE this waterer so my girls have access to cleaner water! I have 2 "regular" waterers and by the end of the day they are SO dirty! I just hate dumping then out and re-filling them every night and wasteing so much water (5 gallons) I have gotten to the point where I only fill them up to the 2 gallon mark :-) I love this waterer and so would my girls! ~~Sandra Baur

  • Cady

    We have a seperate chicken coop with two hens that make a huge mess with their water. I hate rinsing out dirt and pine shavings out of their water, I would love this for them! It would make me happier knowing that they always have fresh clean water to help them stay healthy. Thank you for this giveaway!

    I think this is a great water.. I could use it.. I hae cancer and it is hard for me to water and this would make it so so much easyer.. and I can keep my chickens longer if I can take care of them..

  • Just getting started and this looks awesome!

    My girls and I would love this! Would keep me from changing their water 4 times a day!!

    This looks like such a wonderful system. I have fibromyalgia and a heart condition and this would make chicken keeping so much easier for me. I am determined to care for my flock myself no matter what! I am constantly on the look out for things that make chicken keeping easier and work better for the chickens as well! Since I cannot carry more than 2 gallons at a time, this would be perfect for me. It would also be nice in the winter as I could fill it with hot water and not have to deal with frozen water. I am already subscribed to your blog. Thanks. If I should win, you can email me at

  • Arkansas is HOT! Cool, clean, fresh water during the scorching summer heat would be wonderful for my girls.
    Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

    I'm just getting started with my backyard ladies. I think they would really enjoy drinking from this awesome waterer.

  • What a great way to keep chickens with plenty of fresh, clean water!!!

  • I plan on starting my own little chicken group soon. this would be a great start in the supply department. i used to have a chicken named Peck many many years ago. She would come when you called her. She thought she was one of the dogs. she was beautiful. she lived to be 5 yrs. old.

  • My ducks are always mucking up the chickens water. This would definately solve that problem! (:>

    Love this. I live in Texas and spend lots of time freezing water bottles and putting in my girls water can. This would be wonderful as I could do it once a day.

    • You won the giveaway! Please check your email for all the details. Congratulations!

  • I'd love to win this for my girls, because no matter how many times I move their water or how high I raise it, they choose to take a dust bath right next to it!!

  • This is a great prize & would love to win it. Thank you for the opportunity! Rose

  • This is so cool! I love how it keeps the water clean and cool in hot weather and warm in winter. I am getting ready for my first backyard chickens this year. I found your blog doing some research. The start up costs for a coop, run, and other equipment are brutal. I would love the Brite Tap Combo Pack. Thank you for having this givaway – grafixmuse (at)

    Great idea! It would keep the girls' water nice and cool in the summer. Thanks for another contest, Linda email:

  • My daughter just went out and got 8 babies this last week-end. This is after her last flock succumbed to the unfortunate discovery by the family dog. It took two tries; my grandson and I nursed the two remaining members of the flock back from their nervous breakdown; they had just started laying again and upon the second break in, the oldest hen and the youngest hen, went to chicken heaven. We still haven't eaten those last two eggs! The grand kids,slower this time to give names, are willing to try again. The fence has been repaired and strengthened; we have moved the dog indoors! We've learned a lot from this last experience; the main thing being "do it right the first time!" This watering system is gonna make my life a lot easier and the (new) chickens will have a cleaner, cooler, drinking experience! Exceptional invention!

    My Flock of 4 Hens really need this waterer, they are constantly filling the bottom of their current waterer with straw, and then they can't drink it out! It gets all scummy, yuck!

    Grin….I rarely comment on anything. I like to lurk. BUT! This is for my girls! We are new chick owners and all three of us (me, 6yr old daughter, and hubby) are a bit clucky. Who knew one could adore these little creatures so much! My email addy is:

  • I need this waterer to keep the water cold and fresh for my hens. We live in the desert where the daytime highs reach 120 in the summer and don't go below 100 from June until September.
    PS – If I'm lucky enough to win, I'll be away from my computer until early on 4/3.

  • I would love to use this with my turkeys! My turkeys always seem to the the worst water out of all of my flocks. It would be nice to not have to change their water every 2 days.

    What a great way to keep the water clean and keep it from spilling.

  • What a brilliant idea! I would love one of these for my flock of 6. Living in NC it gets wicked hot in the summer..i will freeze bottles of water and put it in the drinkers. PLUS i have yet to find a chicken water that does not leak or fail for some reason..i have tried several and they all tend to irk me !! Thanks for offering this !! Happy Spring!! xox meme

  • Actually I'd like to win it to give to my mother. I used to help her take care of our chickens when I lived with them, but now she does it all alone. She does alright, but I'd really like to help her out with something better than the metal pan she uses now. Plus where she is the summers get hot and the winters get very cold. It might help the flock out there, as well. I like to do what I can for them, even though I moved so far away.

    Thank you for the opportunity.

  • OH MY WORD!! I was just telling myself how bad I need one of these! We just re-started our flock with about 30 chicks. Texas heat+30 birds is going mean LOTS of water!

    I would love to win this waterer for my Cochin bantams. They are always turning theirs over. It would be great for them to have clean fresh water that they can't turnover and waste. (^V^) My Email is:

  • I could really use this waterer, I'm so tired of the dirt and grime that ends up in their water now and it has to be changed several times during the day. I think it would make my girls much happier too. You know it's bad when they rush you when they see you carrying the gallon jugs of water!

  • This would be wonderful!! We have extremely HOT summers and very cold winters. This would solve both problems for me!! Thanks so much!!

    Thanks for giving us a chance to win!

  • this is the best idea I've ever seen. It would be great here in missouri just enough to keep it from freezing in the winter and cool in the summer. I been trying to come up with a way to keep water to my girls, this would deffinatley do the trick.

  • I've been thinking about switching to this watering system and have been idly thinking about how to DIY it… If I win this, then I would save myself the trouble…LOL!

  • Perfect addition for the flock!!!

    I live in AZ this would be awesome especially in the 100 degree summers

  • My chickens dislike the cheap waterer we have, so I have to fill up a bowl for them a few times a day instead. This would be much better!

  • Finally a way to keep it clean….I am always cleaning their tray. What a great idea.

  • We'd love one. Our first chicks arrive Thursday!!! My two young girls are so excited! We'd love to use this with our chicks as we start small and grow our flock.
