Hello, I don't feel my chicken are drinking enough. I keep their original 1 quart water feeder in their coop and they can go and drink anytime they want. I refill it once every other day. There are seven (7) chickens. Another feeder is is using water cups (http://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/cage_watering_kit.html) but I have them into pvc and a large bucket. They have not gotten the hang of pecking at the yellow part and they get water. Then I also have a gatorade bottle with a nipple. I show them and they peck at it and then nothing - I's been 5 day with out refilling that one.
How do I teach them to drink???? I prefer to get rid of the quart waterer and use the nipple or cup system.
Thanks for any help.
