Turkeys -> Drinking systems for turkey rearing
Type of drinkers for fattening turkey:
- fattening of the broiler chicken
- turkey production
- turkey fattening
Bucket drinkers, clamped on the nipples and the pipe supplying water to the drinkers when fattening turkey and broiler chicken. The bucket, suspended on a special fine spring, fills by the force of gravity; as it fills, it lowers under the weight of the water until the water supply is completely shut off, but when the water runs out (the chicks drink water from the bucket) the bucket rises, releasing the valve on the nipple, from which the flowing water fills the bucket again.
The assembly and disassembly of bucket drinkers is quick and easy, thanks to which it can be done practically at any time and adjusted to the current needs, e.g. for broiler chicken fattening or turkey rearing or fattening.
Drinking water is just as important to the birds as the feed. Computer programs allow water consumption to be continuously tracked and logged at certain times of the day, over the course of a day or longer periods of time. The analysis of water consumption allows the producer to permanently assess the health of the birds and to react quickly in the event of any anomalies (sudden decrease or increase in water consumption).
