    So I bought these drinking cups thinking that it would help keep my coup cleaner and I wouldn't have to worry so much about the ladies running out of clean drinking water. However they have yet to learn to hit the little yellow water release to fill the cup. Any thoughts on how I can "teach" them to hit it and get water?
    Thanks for your help...[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
