    Okay... Have been using poultry nipples attached to 1 liter bottles as primary water supply. Today I decided to attach those nipples under a 5 gallon Lowes bucket. My girls won't drink from it. I need help to make them sink from it.

    They'll drink from it..not to worry. They are seeing something "strange" to them, they're not liking it one bit. What you need to do (if it were me) go sit out there and "click" the stainless steel thingie...keep clicking it and eventually they will come over out of curiosity. Once you get one to drink, they'll all drink.

    Make SURE you have it at the right height so they don't have to stoop so much to get to them.
