I was initially very excited to receive and use the waterer; the plastic is very thick and looks quite durable. Unfortunately the rubber stopper broke quickly (about 10 days of use); I didn't think this would impact the full functionality of the waterer but it now leaks continuously and all 4 gallons spill out even with the lid tightened. So sadly I have a really cute waterer that doesn't function at all.
After I contacted Urban-egg, who were very helpful, I finally got the cap on right and the drinker works great!
They rubber stopper took a few times to get right, but other than that. Now I get it in right first time everytime.😉 It is a fabulous waterer.
Company was great to work with. Easy fill back saver. Highly recommend
I like that it is raised off the ground. Our only complaint is that the rubber stopper is really hard to get into the hole to fill
Very well made feeder with top quality materials! Food stays dry. The treadle and door have needed quite a bit of adjustments to try and get it to fully close,
It is a very well built feeder just trying to get chickens used of using it
We needed an automatic feed to feed our 6 or so chickens AND be rodent proof, as we are in the mountains with lots of crawly things. This does the job great, and I was surprised by the gauge of the metal and quality of the build. I expect this to last for many years to come.
I am hoping my hens will get used to it. I have another brand and they love it. This one requires sticking their head farther in to eat. I like the idea they can't make much mess but so far very reluctant to use it...even with it weighted open.
It is perfect and was delivered very quickly, thanks!
We found this through a number of searches and knew i was exactly what we needed, but then no-one had it in stock. We finally found it her on Urban Egg and got it right away. It's even better in person. Well-constructed, no sharp edges, and it will be easy to sterilize and maintain.
I like this product, but my chickens are still 50/50 on using it. I'll keep trying to get them to accept it. I did go out and buy a rivet tool to put it together, but they do send additional nuts and bolts to put it together, I just didn't understand what they were for.
I bought one of these as I had an egg eating problem and my eggs were very dirty. This solved both problems and my chickens love it. The eggs are clean and away from eating chickens. I like it so well I bought a second one. They are easy to assemble and light weight enough that even I can carry it. They are very sturdy and will last a very long time to come. I sat mine on cinder blocks and it works very well. I cannot tell you how happy I am with these nest's!! I highly recommend them to even small chicken owners!!
We had an egg eater problem in our flock. This absolutely solved our problem! Hens didn't mind switching over at all! Easy to install in our coop, it fit into our preexisting space for nests.
Quality equipment, wonderful working with the service from urban egg.
Love my humidifier and incubator from River. It gets put through its paces. I do need to replace the humidifier sensor though. With frequent use, the sensor wire goes through some wear from bending around and into the incubator hood.
Like any working machine that gets used with as much enthusiasm as mine does, I would expect to replace this kind of delicate sensor. Glad River Systems supplies replacement parts.
The only other thing I would say is when filling the humidifier, make sure to keep water from spilling into the sensor plug-in too. The unit might benefit from a little plastic shield just above the plug-in hole, if they would like some constructive feedback👍
I contacted River in Italy, and they guided me here for a new sensor plug. Awesome 😁!
Seriously, how can I possibly make any complaint, especially with my constant use of the system like I do, and the consistent and "egg-cellent" hatch rate I get, lol.
Thank you Urban Egg and River Systems!
I build my incubator years ago. It is 24" w 38" h 32" d made of 3/4" ply and lined with thin aluminum. I have two trays inside which holds 280 Pheasant eggs. I could add more trays if I wanted to. I am telling you this so you have an idea how large the incubator is. I use to use a water pan with a humidifier filter submerged on a shelf in the incubator with the heater fan blowing across it. Tough to control accurate humidity this way. I bought the Nebula Ultrasonic Humidifier this year. After a little adjusting for my size incubator it has been keeping the humidity constant. I don't have to tinker with humidity any more. The 1/2 gal reservoir needs refiling every 4 days with my setup. I learned years ago buy a good product cry once over price, enjoy trouble free operation, which this product is giving me. That shelf that held the water tray now holds 42 more eggs in a separate egg turner. Win win.
This was a perfect addition to our River System Incubator! Life gets busy, and the humidifier attachment kept our incubator perfect! Well worth the money!
Wonderful...The cost was very high but it worked perfectly right out of the box. Much better than the other humidifier that costs much less.
EggTech Digital Incubator with Ovomatic Egg Turning
We have this system and can absolutely testify that it is the best! It's so easy to use! We're currently celebrating our third hatch with it since purchasing earlier this year!
This is the best incubator....EVER! So easy to set up, maintain, and well made. Great product, well priced for what you get and worth every penny.
