The eye-to-beak coordination of turkey poults deteriorates as they age. For this reason producers need a system that helps assure poults can still activate the drinker and receive adequate water even when their coordination has deteriorated. The enclosed watering system keeps water more hygienic and the litter drier.



The T-Max adult turkey drinker is an alternative to bell drinkers that outperforms other watering systems in all critical areas. Finishing turkeys requires birds to get ample hygienic water. Because turkeys have poor eye-to-beak coordination,
T-Max gives birds a large target they can’t miss. The drinker dispenses fresh water with each drinking action, while minimizing spillage, so birds grow big and litter stays dryer, reducing ammonia release for healthier flocks.

T-Max is also self-cleaning. As turkeys drink,
T-Max tips and rotates, swishing water around to clean the drinker inside. Hours of scrubbing required for traditional bell drinkers is eliminated.

T-Max is designed to prevent wear-out that turkeys can rapidly inflict on watering systems. Ziggitys shock-absorbing flex-stem allows the entire drinker to give, absorbing aggressive turkey behavior, eliminating breakage and potential leaks.



As the poultry watering experts, Ziggity’s goal is to help you maximize flock performance by focusing on bird, litter and system performance. Review these real world performance results to see how a properly managed Ziggity system can deliver maximum performance.

Growing Big, Healthy Birds

Finishing turkeys requires birds to get ample hygienic water. Turkeys have poor eye-to-beak coordination, so we created a large target that turkeys can’t miss. T-Max is designed to dispense fresh water with each drinking action, while minimizing spillage. Birds grow big. Litter stays dryer, reducing ammonia release for healthier flocks.

Self-Cleaning Drinkers

T-Max tips and rotates while the turkey drinks. It is not a stationary drinker like cups used on other systems. This action swishes water around, cleaning the drinker inside, eliminating many hours of scrubbing required for traditional bell drinkers. Plus, field tests show that litter tilling can be reduced or eliminated.

Built To Survive

Turkey’s have the ability to rapidly wear out watering systems. Ziggity’s shock-absorbing flex-stem allows the entire drinker to “give”, absorbing aggressive turkey behavior, eliminating breakage and potential leaks.
