    Hi everyone,

    well I joined about a year ago, and things just been slow here in phoenix, but as of 5/27/16 I've built my coop and now have my girls home. I have 6 total, all about 2 months old. 2 white leghorns, 2 RIR's, 1 buff orphington, and 1 austrilorpe. not sure if that spelling is correct lol. I saw a post the other day about chickens learning how to use chicken nipples, I installed mine the second day the girls got home, my orphington led the way, and after one day they all heard to the water buckets lol. so if anybody is worried about their chickens learning how to use the nipples, don't worry, they will figure it out !!

    Hi and welcome to BYC. Having been a member for so long, there's no need to help you navigate the site, and yes, i agree that teaching chickens to use water nipples is far from difficult!

    All the best

    Welcome to BYC. You have some smart chickens - some do take awhile to figure it out. But generally once a chicken can do it, the others will imitate.
