    Has anyone used drinking cups for their chickens. they are similar to the nipples except water goes into a small cup for the chicken to drink out of. I have not had any luck getting my chickens to use the nipples and just saw a video on these cups. Any input would be great. I am setting up a new coop and would like to just do the set-up once if possible.

    I use cups in some of my pens and brooders, I like them a whole lot better than the nipples.
    The only thing about cup is that they have to be level.

    Can I ask where you buy your cups.. I have looked in several farm catalogs and can not find them.
