The red Lubing 4007 chicken drinker cup with yellow float is made in Germany. It is designed to maintain a small amount of water in the drinker cup all the time which reduces evaporation of water. Our chicken waterer cups are unaltered because the manufacturer, Lubing, knows what they are doing and there is no reason to keep extra water in the cup to heat up and collect more dust. Handles up to 300mm of water pressure only. They are in this category despite being automatic chicken waterers becuase they can be used on a small scale in cages and brooders.

Use any substantial container with thick enough base to allow a good thread to hold the cup.
