Chicks and water cups

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have some 4 or 5 week old isa brown chicks and they finaly out grew their quart waterer so i bout 2 nipple cups (the red and yellow ones) and put them on a 5 gallon bucket. I feel like the chicks aint strong enought to push the yellow nipple around to get water. I can fill the cup by pushin the nipple and they drink till its gone but i cant tell if there getting anything out when the water runs out i feel like they havent figured out "hey i gotta push this yellow thing to get water." Has anyone had any luck with chicks and the water nipple/cups? Thanks

are they nipples or cups?

 

These or something else?

The latter has a float that keeps it full and works better for chicks.

Chicks can learn nipples fairly quickly but the first drinker cup is more appropriate for adults.
