Giveaway: A BriteTap Combo Pack

It is with great pleasure that I introduce to you our newest sponsor,  I have to tell you that their product has revolutionized my flocks’ waterer.  No matter who I talk to, providing a clean water source for your chickens is one of the difficulties that chicken keepers face. No matter the flock size, somehow traditional waterers always seem to get a bit mucky by the end of the day.  The Brite Tap waterer is now available as a smart and viable option to keep your flock’s water crystal clear and free from possible water borne illnesses. 
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.
Easily assembled, the waterer is filled and place at eye level with your flock.  Once introduced, it does not take long for the chickens to get the hang of it.  They seem to learn from one another quite quickly.
It took Tilly and the girls a few hours to figure out how to use this waterer.  In the Northeast, it has been cold and the waterer has worked nicely as long as we do not go into freezing conditions.  I fill the cooler with warm water in the morning and at the end of the day, I remove it from the coop and place it in the garage to prevent it from freezing.  There are other helpful techniques on the website too to help deal with freezing temperatures.   On days when I expect icy temperatures, I use the traditional waterers.  The girls do not mind interchanging. Yet, I do have to say that I am most looking forward to filling our Brite Tap Combo Pack with cool refreshing water in the summer.  I know the girls will appreciate drinking crystal clear, chilled water from the cooler that lasts the day during the summer heat!

  • I love this product! What a great giveaway!! If I win, please email me at [email protected]. Thanks 🙂

  • I said "Hello" to chickenwaterer on Facebook and said "Tilly sent me".

  • My flock would sure benefit from the Brite Tap water because the summer temps here get aboe 115 degrees and I could keep the water clean and cold for them.

  • What a great new product!

  • I'm already a subscriber through RSS feed at My Yahoo.

  • This would be such a great addition to our coop. We're newbies and trying to figure this all out!

  • We cleaned out our coop yesterday and I was telling my online friends that clean water is the biggest challenge raising chickens. What a great idea to use a cooler. I will wait until after your drawing, but if I don't win I will definitely be buying at least one!

  • My chickens (and two turkeys)would dearly love this because it would keep their water cleaner and healthier for them.

  • Visited the page and already [email protected] Krystal

  • This is awesome! Exactly what we have been looking for and didn't even know they existed. Our barn is quite a walk from the house and I think this would save us multiple trips out there to refresh the icky water in a standard waterer. Thank you for the offer!

  • My grandfather taught me if you want healthy animales you need clean water.Most of my water troughs I can keep clean except for the chickens.This looks like a good system.

  • I think my chickens would benefit from this chicken waterer because it is covered and the water will stay fresh longer. It is a cooler so warm or cold water will stay warm far longer than regular waterers.

  • Sorry forgot to leave my email addy it is [email protected] Thanks Tara

  • Thanks for the info! Love your blog and page!

  • Hello! I would love a chance to win the chicken waterer. I would not have to worry about the girls drinking dirty water. My email is gui[email protected] .


  • My waterer always starts out clean, but as soon as the dust baths start, it's a mess again. Would love to try this!
    [email protected]

  • What a great giveaway! [email protected]

  • Would love to have one of these as it will keep the water clean. I'm constantly having to clean out their current water quite often.

  • Yeah! I've been looking for a way to keep my girls water clean. I have 5 now, but have 13 more coming in the spring. Even if I don't win, I'm probably going to try this out. The rubbermade container with the lid is such a great idea!! [email protected]

  • Would love to try this! Ordering our first chicks this spring and need all the help I can get, smiles.

  • I'm already a follower.

  • Hello Tilly's Nest! Welcome to your new sponsor, Chicken Wow, this product looks awesome. My girls would love to give this a go. I am in need of an additional waterer. I could move my current (and so generic, always full of muck and shavings) one to the run and put this beauty in the coop. Clean water for my 15 layers is so important for their egg laying super powers. If I am lucky enough to win, you can reach me at [email protected].

    PS- I went over and said "Hello" to the ChickenWaterer's Facebook page and I am already a member of your fabulous blog. I LOVE it! Thanks for another great contest.

  • My girls and I would benefit because it would keep their water cleaner-thus keeping the girls happy-thus they lay me some eggs-thus they make me happy. If I am happy my family is happy. And so on ;). [email protected] I am a follower of your blog and commented on facebook site. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  • My Flock would benefit from the Brite Tap Waterer because we live in AZ and our temperature goes from one extreme to the other. We have freezing temp and then 100+ plus weather. I have a bucket now with nipple waterers but they are constantly knocking it over.

  • Hello, and thank you for this contest!! Great page and blog's!! Our flock could benefit from this as we are alway's taking in neglected bird's and this would be a great way to gaurentee fresh water at all time's!! Thank you, Amanda McNeal from IddyBit Acre's, [email protected]

  • Stopped over at the on Facebook and said hello. Really like the idea of being able to use different containers, that you may already own, with the chicken waterer tap. My girls would benefit from access to clean fresh cooled water in the summer using a cooler w/ the tap, thats for sure, and i wouldn't need to dump and rinse out their waterer several times a day from 'stuff' that has fallen in.

  • Posting "below" to enter. [email protected]

    Posting my why my flock could use this.
    Cool water in the summer, chunk of ice in a water cooler, warmed water in the winter. Who couldn't love this? I want to get into chicken nipples instead of free standing water they can make a mess out of.

    Said hi to chicken waterer on face book.

    Already am a subscriber.

    3. I would love this because we have two seperate coops and in one coop the two young ones kick everything in their waterer. Thank you so much!!!

  • My boy likes to trash the water as soon as I put it in. The girls would certainly appreciate it if we found a way to outsmart him (he shouldn't be drinking it that way either). I have to change it all the time to keep them from taking in something nasty.

  • What a wonderful waterer. My flock would love this. [email protected]
