Invision, you've specifically used this type of nipple drinker? with the cup attachment? and it still dripped?!!

no, just the nipple drinker (original design if you may). I've found that if you seal them they wont work (bucket with lid or bottle upside down.
To me the nipple drinkers are very good, no cleaning involved. But unless kept outside on dirt or something that can drain i do not recommend them for inside enclosures (STINKY). My quail attack the nipple part violently and throw water everywhere. Think for my breeders that will be kept inside shed I will just have a trough that they have to sick their heads through to.
yeah I don't think I'm going to consider the original nipple waterers due to leakage. I was just considering between these two:
Space is too tight for the waterers to be 'trough' style.... so these on a vertical pvc will have to do. And since they'll be indoors I'm not too worried about the freezing part. ;) But thanks for the tip with the aquarium heater. I too have saltwater fish so I've got plenty laying around! lol.
Will this work for quail? Do they know to drink from a nipple like this?
