I have been reading and researching the nipple watering systems are they really worth it? Is it best to install them inside the coop or out in the run or both? Any adivse would be apreciated chicks due to go out into the coop in about 4 weeks

They are definatley worth it and they are super efficient. I suggest putting it inside the coop.

We have winters that dip into the negative and no way to power a heater for the water, so we just switch out frozen bottles for thawed. even with that it's a million times easier than thawing out the big waterers. They stay cleaner and it's easier to see how much is being used because there is no spilling.

Nipples are great. Less mess and saves water. The way I use mine is I took a bucket and drilled holes in the bottom, installed the nipples and hung it from the ceiling of my coop. I just pore water in it and put the lid on. Keeps your birds from getting bedding and poo in their water. I have 9 girls in the coop now and only have to mess with the water once a week.
