    So I'm getting some Dwarf Nigerian goats (yay, finally!) and I'm wondering if anyone has tried using poultry nipples with goats for their water. I use them on the bottom of a hanging bucket for my hens and love that everything stays clean. I noticed there are special livestock nipples but since I have extra poultry nipples hanging around I wondered first if they would work. Thanks!

    I doubt it.

    I have no idea whether or not poultry nipples would work, but I have used Lixit waterers made for dogs. The goats loved them and it didn't take them long to learn how to use them.
