    I came across a nipple waterers for chickens, and am wondering if ducks can be trained to use them? I realize I have to put out another source of water for cleaning and dipping their bills in. I just thought this would work for keeping drinking water clean.

    I am not sure ducks would want to drink from them because they like to dabble.
