    "Great choice"
    Pros - Easy to clean, easy to fill, easy to keep clean, doesn't spill out.
    Cons - None, except I'm paranoid about breaking them......
    I don't know why I didn't get these sooner but they were one of the best decisions I made during my years of chicken keeping (the first best would be getting chicks ;)). Recommended for all chicken keepers!

      Thank you for your review! To help settle your nerves- I don't think it is possible to break them! We have used and installed hundreds, with no breaking to date :)

    Hi, I was wondering how do you install the nipple waterers?
    1. ngennetta
      Hello! I am sorry for the delay, I was out of town.

      Every pack of nipples comes with installation and training instructions, and installation is easy! Just drill a 11/32" hole in the intended container, and screw in the nippled about 80%. Make sure to drill a small breather hole in the containers lid. And that's it!
