Our two-piece chicken waterer is modeled on a vintage design used on farms across America in the first half of the 20th century. An opening near the bottom of the crock allows continuous refilling of water from the upper crock as it depletes from the rim of the saucer below. The thick stoneware helps moderate water temperature, keeping it cool in the summer and from freezing in winter. To fill the "fountain," simply invert the upper crock, fill with water, cover with the upside-downs saucer, and then swiftly invert both pieces. Handmade and glazed by artisans in Ohio. Two-piece design allows for easy filling and cleaning Provides room for up to four hens at a time. Hand-wash. 10" diam., 9" high with bottom saucer; 1-gal. cap. Made in USA.
