Usual Crown ball-type drinker, with addition of three sturdy extendable fold-away legs.
The two smaller Crown drinkers are simple press-fit onto the base, but the larger models twist-lock for positive attachment. This makes them easy to carry and shift, using the wire handles attached. Also the larger sizes have a flat top which serves to stand the drinker upright on when filling. Ball drinkers prevent chicks standing in the trough.
The Converter is Crown’s answer to watering various-age chicks with the same device. It can be set up with a low roof, legs folded under and an anti-drown ring which serves to reduce the depth of water to prevent chicks drowning. For older chicks the drown-ring is removed, the extendable legs are folded out, and a tank extension is added to lift the roof to a more suitable height. This all makes the Converter a very versatile drinker. Trough is 24cm diameter. Delivery tube 1.5m with standard Crown float assembly and pipe connector. A handy feature is the small clip on the roof which secures the delivery tube out of the way.
This drinker has the benefit of being able to be filled with a hose or bucket in the top, directly into the inner tank, whilst the drinker is on the ground. The white top-cover is then locked into place, allowing the drinker to be carried or suspended. This system is far more convenient, especially with a large capacity drinker, than having to fill while inverted. Alternatively by removing the 9-litre inner liner, the unit can be used as a 13-litre conventional ‘straight’ drinker.
This large hopper-type poultry drinker has a very large lid to be easily filled from a bucket or hose. The lid has two simple tabs to hold it down, and also an air breather valve in the peak. There is then a float valve in the bottom of the hopper which maintains a constant water level in the drinker bowl. This water level can be adjusted by wing-nuts underneath. The drinker rim height is only 7cm, so suitable for a wide range of birds. Diameter 44cm, height 50cm overall. Another quality Crown poultry product.
This kit includes five small-chicks drinking stations, plus all the lines and couplings to set them up. Each drinking station has an internal float-valve device which is fed from the one circuit water line. Each 17cm-diameter drinking station has 3 sturdy extendable fold-away legs, so they can be used for various age chicks. A water filter is included. Supplied with 8.5m of delivery tube, plus pipe connection device.
Pigeon-type drinker with Crown float valve and 1.5m of hose line. Clamp-type fitting connects to any low pressure water line. Water depth is not adjustable. Lid removes for cleaning. Dimension is outside diameter of lid.
The Crown Auto-fill drinker has a standard Crown float valve, 1.5m delivery hose and pipe connector system. The float is depth adjustable. The drinker is supplied with three sturdy extendable fold-away legs that can be folded under when watering baby chicks. Bowl is 185mm diameter.
The advantage of the straight-sided drinker is that the birds can drink without having to duck under the bulge of the water container. The bowl is also wider, allowing more drinking space. Certainly these are more suitable for larger birds. The container can be stood upside-down for filling.
As supplied with Crown auto-fill drinkers. Comprising 1.5m of delivery tube with connector nut one end and pipe connector on other. The pipe connector also incorporates an on/off valve, and is suitable for connection on any 15mm or 20mm water pipe.
