Solway Maxi Cup Watering System GIVEAWAY!!!

I'm excited to share with you the new way we are providing water to our Turkeys! We just installed the new Maxi Cup side mounted waterer in our coop, and the process couldn't have been easier!

This design works wonderful for poultry with larger anatomical features. Our turkeys have larger beaks and larger heads than our chickens and they really enjoy this system. It would also work perfectly for ducks who drink in a scooping motion with their bills.

Materials Needed
-Maxi Cup waterer (Available for purchase soon from Solway)
-Plastic bucket with lid, we're using a 5 gallon
-drill
-7/16" drill bit

Simply drill a hole 2 1/4" from the bottom of the bucket. Remove the filter and the nut from the threaded post.



Install the Maxi Cup.

Tighten the nut on the inside,

and install the filter.

Fill with water and place the bucket lid on top to keep things extra clean.

The compact cup design minimizes debris from entering the water. As the birds drink, clean water is replaced from the bucket. So 5 gallons of drinking water is always available to your birds, with minimal exposure to dirt.


The great thing is that one of you is also going to win one of these fabulous waterers!!! This is an exclusive opportunity as this design is not even available for purchase yet! To enter, leave a comment below with your name, e-mail and a bit about how this waterer would help make watering easier with your flock. I'll choose a lucky winner on Tuesday, May 20th, 2014. If you enter, be sure to check back after the contest to see if you won, if the prize is not claimed by May 27th, another winner will be chosen.

Can't wait to win? The Maxi Cup is available for purchase in the US click here Maxi Cup.

I would love to win this for my girls! One of the hardest things is keeping their water supply clean, and lugging fresh water several times a day gets crazy. laddspam at gmail.com

Crystal Abel websurfergirl19@hotmail.com My mixed flock wouldn't be able to knock over the water and spill it all over or get huge debris in it with this waterer.

Brandon said...

Absolutely great waterer! I saw this on Community Chickens and have since been browsing your website. I love it!

Mary Klepac sunniehart@hotmail.com . This waterer looks like it would solve a lot of problems. My daughter would love it for her spoiled girls!

priscillaalnge@yahoo.com This is a simple but clever idea for watering your fowl. Having it raised off of the floor is key in keeping debri out as well. I'd love to start my chicks out with this innovative necessity. Thanks for the 2nd. opportunity to enter this giveaway. Peggy Lange

Amy said...

bestponymilo@yahoo.com. I'd love to have one of these--would make my mornings so much easier since I have to carry buckets daily from the house to the coop!

Lisa said...

Love this waterer! The tank could be wrapped in heat tape to avoid freezing in winter, and a piece of PVC leading into it, through the lid, from the outside of the coop would make refilling very easy.

dutchchick said...

I would love to win this for my girls! it would mean less filling waterers and cleaner water too! thanks so much for the opportunity to win it!

I'm getting heritage turkey hatching eggs (Bourbon Reds) in a couple of weeks. This Solway waterer will be the turkey's pajamas to get my turkeys started out right, with clean fresh water from the get-go. Thank you for this opportunity to win such a great design in watering systems!

I would like to win the maxi cup waterer for my daughter-in-law Paula who gets up at 4 A.M. before work to feed and water her 24 chickens, cats, and dogs. She has a a fenced in space under a dual chicken coop/feral cat structure that is very difficult to haul water to in the outside space. This would save her back from carrying buckets of water from the kitchen to the coop. All of her pets are rescue animals so I think she deserves to win! I also babysit for her animals and it would make watching the outside animals much easier for me!

Carrie Lynn said...

Would love to add this to our farm - like you I am in love with our heritage turkey's (I see some little chocolate poults in the pic) this would make the chore of hauling water a lot easier. clheidrich@gmail.com. Thanks for the chance to win - Carrie

Robin said...

As we all know keeping clean water for our birds is a challenge! I think this system would solve my problem and I could then add ducks!

Rhonda Lynn said...

I just recently inherited a flock and they had the nipple waterer, but it just fell and broke :( This is a great watering system and it would be so easy to install and use. I would love it very much!! My name is Rhonda Lynn and my email is (written out to prevent spam) inspiredfelt (at) gmail.com

I love the design and think it would be a great help in keeping the girls' water clean.

It would make things better for our flock, with it coming into hotter months they would need more water; being we live in the south and it's so hot and humid down here.

Since we have 5 ducks and 10 hens, it's really a challenge keeping our waterers clean! I'd love to keep the girls happy and stop wasting so much water cleaning the waterers. Jenna Rose, the280zgirl at hotmail.com

I am so tired of cleaning up water in the coop. This would be wonderful for my turkeys and me!
Thank-you,

'Anonymous' at jmka711@hotmail.com . I have aherd of Nubian milk goats and a flock of assorted hens. This waterer would be a great help in watering hens and keeping them out of the Does' water. Clean clear water for All ! Amen !

Helen LaRue said...

Helen LaRue, hlarue0257@gmail,com. this would sure keep my chickens from spilling the water!

Mary Bronson, maryyucaipa@aol.com. This is such a great idea and my hens would love it especially with the weather warming up.

Karen Pennebaker said...

KarenLane@aol.com. This looks like the best idea yet for keeping clean water available!

Toni said...

Thank you for offering this giveaway!!!
My name is Toni
My Email address is blkoi1950@gmail.com

I would like to win because where I live it gets really hot during the summer and my watering options are limited either due to the heat, algae growth or water fouling.
So I keep my chickens waterer in their coop.
Currently it is a 5 gallon water bottle upside down in a 5 gallon water bucket.
This becomes gross in a heartbeat!!!!

I have tried using watering nipples but this puts the bucket too high for me to comfortable carry and I am afraid the chickens will knock it off when it is partially filled and hurt themselves.

Having a maxi-cup on a bucket would be great!
It would solve so many problems!!!!
I can fill the bucket and the rest of the water will not become fouled up!!!!

If I won, I would gladly do a write up on how having it has helped.

April at april.coffin@gmail.com. Our waterers sit outside since our birds (turkeys, guineas, chickens) free-range during the day -- and since we are in Oklahoma, the wind gets the water crazy-dirty, all the time! I think this gadget would have a great wind-block of the reservoir, and maybe eliminate some of the grit and subsequent cleaning!

Tracy Spangler said...

We would like to add Muscovy ducks and a few turkeys to our growing chicken flock, and this would be an easier way to keep their water clean. As it is now my husband or daughter goes out several times a day to clean out all the gunk that collects in normal waterers, and it would be nice to eliminate that chore! Thanks so much!

Wow! This is awesome. I have 105 chick's and 2 turkeys right now and I feel like I'm always watering. This would truly be a help.

I really like this waterer. What a time saver it could be this summer.

Lisa Shoulders said...

Lisa Shoulders lisashoulders@yahoo.com This would help my 1st flock and help to not have them bathe in every container.

We just brought home our first batch of chicks a few weeks ago and we don't have a watering system chosen for their portable coop yet. The Solway one looks like a great way to keep the water clean. Thank-you for the chance to win. Krista krisbudlongathotmaildotcom

This would be wonderful for me. I have to carry water quite a distance so being able to do it less often would be very helpful.

Actually I would use this for my cockatiels. I have about 40+ in an outside aviary and boy does their water get grungy.

Linda@lindasteiger.com would love to win one of these waterers. Think it might even work in the winter by sitting it on the solid electric chicken water warmers. I have a few ducks in with my chickens and they get the water tub so dirty because they want to swim in it! With a bad back most waterers are too heavy for my to lift - I could refill this one with the hose.

Our chickens tip over the bowls we have so we've resorted to open dishes. Would love to have one of these to try!

Hillary Doggart-Greer hjdgreer@gmail.com There is a decent sized hill between our run/coop and the spigot. After adding 5 more ladies to our flock, I could use something to reduce my water filling duties!

Gail Vance said...

I've been using the chicken nipple watering system, but I've been wanting to get some ducks. I have been looking for some way that is as convenient to water ducks, This is it!

Gabe and Libby said...

I'm brand new to chicken raising. This watering method would help me immensely, because I wouldn't have to change the water so often. Since I'm disabled, any type of help is great.
Thanks!

This looks like a wonderful boon to watering, with our current methods it seems you just cant get away from getting dirty water or putting your back out with the never ending cleaning/refilling of these methods. With a disabled hubby it generally leaves the lugging around to me and my back can't take it too much either. We would love this system.
