I recently made a waterer using waterer cups and a five gallon bucket. I can't seem to get my chickens to use the cups. I have dipped the beaks of most of the chickens in the cups so they know water is there but whenever I check the cups, they are completely dry. I have also filled the cups up in front of some of them. They work when you press the yellow switch so it's not the cups. My chickens just don't seem interested in them. They have used bowls or regular chicken waterers the entire time I've had chickens so this new thing must be confusing them.
What else can I do to help them figure this new system out.?
