Hello

Hi ~  I'm Marilyn and new to BYC and I'm excited to have found you!  Me and my 4 year old grandson will be taking care of the chickens here in Vallejo, CA.  I had chickens a few years ago and my area wasn't setup to where it was easy to water and feed them so after about 2 years I gave them to a school that had a little farm.  But we are more educated now and ready to go!  I have 15 little chicks that are now about a week old.  I am setting up the coop to be easier for us to manage, NO MORE MUD!  Bringing in gravel and sand to cover the outside run.  I want to setup an auto watering system and it will be a direct line to water source but I don't know if I should use the nipples or the cups.  Anyone have a preference?

Hi and a warm welcome to BYC! I use nipples, but i have no experience with cups, so I'll leave a more educated response from other members that have used both. 

 

All the best

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

I do not have an automatic watering system so I can not share a preference.  I just wanted to say 'hi'.  :frow
