First one is horizontal nipple, 2nd one is a vertical one... the other horizontal ones are cups, but those freeze in winter...

Correct, as usual, Rav. I use the latter some of the time - especially for the tiddlers. A few litres in a bucket goes a long way without re-filling.

Add vodka, it will lower the freezing temperature and make your nipple more effective :P

either way i am still going to have water everywhere with my ducks, because they will still require a regular waterer

the first one is horizontal. The 2nd is vertical.

The horizontal stay thawed better and don't require a hanging bucket.

The ducks use the cup waterers on the 55 gallon drum but I do keep 3 buckets and 2 tubs round for them to wash their heads in.
NPIP & AI CLEAN
Ducks I raise: Snowy calls and Anconas

Last market of the year... I could *technically* come back Wednesday, but I'll either not have enough stock to bother, or be too disheartened. Should still be able to send folks some packing material, though wink.png

Which reminds me... @abbevilleoz, did you get my PM?

1 Gold Laced Wyandotte, 1 EE, 1 black Orp, 1 white Orp/Leghorn mix, 1 BR, 1 RIR

 

1 boxer, 1 chihuahua, 2 daughters, and a great hubby

 

All female, except for the hubby. Poor man...
