    I am getting a wet bar for the chicks. Will the guineas learn to drink from these nipple waterers? and can I give them ACV and garlic just as I will give the chicks?

    I have had difficulty teaching my chicks about nipples and holes for feeders and waterers. Something like that usually takes time. They will learn by smelling the water. So maybe if you put a strong smelling electrolyte mix and dip their beaks in it they will learn quicker. Good luck! Let me know how if turns out!

    Mmmm I am very interested to know, as I too have just bought my keets one for their hut, they have other free water, and haven't touched the new nipple/come self water thing that it is...I don't want to take out their other water just in case they don't know how to use it..I too would like to know if keets and guineas can have ACV and Garlic....:)
