    Chicken Nipples are small water valves that let your chickens drink from a bucket or any container you would like to put them on. I use them all year long, as they keep my water clean, and no debris can get into the water when I have the lids on. You drill a hole in the bottom of the container you choose I use a 5 gallon bucket in the winter with electric pipe tape wrapped around it and then another bucket with the bottom cut our slipped over top the tape pressure fitted, then screw in the little nipples and you are set for winter, summer and if you use a electric cord with a temp controlled plugs or the tapes come with them sometimes, then you don't ever have to worry about your water freezing up as long as the heat tapes are on, and you have electricity.
    I have 3 gallon buckets from WalMart Bakery I use for summer with 4 nipples in the bottom of each bucket.
