Hi there... We bought year old hens from someone and he suggested chicken nipples. He said they can be used in soda bottles as long as they have a regular lid. I'm confused because what I've read says to use PVC pipe or a bucket. Soda bottle waterers look like they're the rabbit waterers. Has anyone used nipples on a soda bottle? I'm thinking the lid is too small? Our run is long and narrow so I'd like to stay away from buckets and our water source isn't close enough to do the PVC. Thanx for advice, 5Leepy!
