    Within seconds of putting in the waterer they were already pecking at it and seeing that water comes out and getting excited and getting more water! A success! Though some of the smaller ones seem a bit confused and peck at the neck of the waterer. The big yellow easter egger looks older than the little wyandottes.

    mine took to it also, but after they get a certain ammount of water out the ball gets stuck from half way up the spout and they cant get anymore.

    im on the chicken nipple now in a soda bottle, and one in a pedialite bottle, gonna do a 5 gal pail when they get larger

    I'll keep an eye out for that. I am planning on going the chicken nipple route so I might as well order them now and give them a try.
