Geese & Ducks


Ducks and Geese

Ducks and Geese have far higher water usage to body weight ratios than any other poultry. This puts extra demand on a watering system for duck and geese applications. To meet this increased demand Ziggity offers a line of drinkers with higher dynamic flow than its conventional broiler drinkers. High dynamic flow drinkers are offered in both Big Z and conventionally sized Ziggity drinkers.

Duck and Goose Breeders

Breeder ducks and geese demand substantially more water than their broiler and commercial layer counterparts. To address that need Ziggity recommends Big Z watering systems with Big Z drinkers. These drinkers are 70% bigger than standard drinkers, in both size and weight, to deliver ample water while providing greater longevity.

Duck and Goose Pullets

Pullets grow from day olds to fully mature egg-producing adults on one watering system. Ziggity floor watering systems allow producers to control water discharge to provide the right amount of water, and adjust drinker height as birds grow to prevent spillage. As a result the birds thrive and turn into solid egg producers.
