I didn't learn about nipple waterers till my chickens were grown and I wanted to know if there was any way to get them to drink from them now. Right now they have a water barrel cut in half (legnthwise) that I clean everyday but they manage to dump it regularly and get all sorts of nasty stuff in it. Has anyone had any luck switching their grown chickens to them or am I out of luck? Edit: I wanted to attach a pvc pipe to a bucket and run it into the coop with the nipples attached to the pipe so I can refill the bucket from outside. Will this work?
