Debating a water nibbler system for my new chicks as they keep messing in their waterer. Any tips on training them to use the nibbler? Any other pros or cons to using the nibblers for young chicks?? Thanks!
Water nibblers for new chicks or not??

I used a 32oz Gatorade bottle and a couple bungee cords. Works perfectly.
I've used both vertical and horizontal nipples. Never had to train any of the girls to use them. Just put them in their pen and removed all the other water sources. I brought my last girls home at night. When I checked on them early in the morning they were already using the nipple waterer. Before that they'd been getting water from a dog bowl. Got the horizontal nipples for winter as they don't freeze up as easily as the vertical nipples do.
