"Excellent keeps the water clean !!!"
Pros - clean water, don't have to keep dumping the dirty water and re filling all the time
Cons - no cons at all
This product is awesome, so happy to have found them. The water is always clean. The chickens had been raised on the older tray type method of water, which was always dirty with chicken poop and pine shavings clogging it up. I was always having to dump it and clean it out. This way its in a closed bucket no dirt getting in, fill the bucket and just keep an eye on it to refill later. Eliminats the constant filling. The chickens took to it immediately, one of them went over did a few pecks and that was it they were off and running, or I should say off and drinking.
"EXCELLENT... EXCELLENT PRODUCT!!"
Pros - Keeps water spotless. Chickens took to it quickly. No wasted water. Keeps bedding dry.
Cons - NONE!
I got these after reading some reviews on Amazon! I initially bought the vertical ones which leak like CRAZY even with silicone applied around them! My 7 week old hens were accustomed to the vertical nipples so I introduced the horizontal nipples on a cooler day and took away the vertical ones. I went down and checked on them constantly to make sure they knew where there water was... by that time they were thirsty so I stood there and pressed in on the nipple to make water come out and JOILA, they figured it out! I am trying to keep it to a 4 bird per nipple ratio to make sure everyone has plenty of access too! I am also using these for my Dominique's which are just 2 weeks old and they figured it out IMMEDIATELY! When using in a brooder it might be wise to make sure they are a couple of weeks old to make sure they are strong enough to push in the nipple to get water If you don't have a 11/32 drill bit... a 3/8 drill will work fine... the BF had to improvise and use a 3/8 but I still haven't had any leaks and it's a nice tight fit! Another thing when you choose these nipples as opposed to the vertical nipples.... if you have the vertical nipples you have to stand and hold up your container as you fill it with water... which is pretty hard for me to stand and fill a 5 gallon bucket for a long time. I also like that I can just set these on a concrete block instead of hanging them because when the chickens are super thirsty and everyone is pecking at a nipple the bucket starts to swing and it's harder for them to drink. HOPE THIS HELPS!!CindyinSD likes this.
"TOTALLY HAPPY WITH THIS PRODUCT"
Pros - Easy to use, don't drip, installs in a bucket or pvc system, Chickens always have clean poop free water. Daily water changing is a thing of the past.
Cons - None at all
After doing lots of online research I settled on purchasing a 10 pack of these nipples. I am so glad that I found these, they work great! I initially installed 3 nipples in a heavy duty 3 gallon bucket with a lid and hung it in my chicken tractor The chickens started drinking from it right away. It is so easy, I just fill the bucket and my 10 chickens have clean water for about a week. My bucket is transparent, so you can see when it needs refilling and the bucket always stays clean. I just set up another pen and used 3 nipples on a pvc pipe attached to the wire with zip ties. A 5 gallon bucket hanging outside the pen supplies the water. I like to travel so having a weeks worth of clean poop/dirt free water is a life saver. It also makes caring for the birds a much easier task for my neighbor that looks after them while I am gone.
