Hi everyone. I have not even purchased my chicks yet and am only working off of what I've read or heard from others to prepare my "setup." My main question is: Will the watering nipples work if they were installed into the side of a bucket, thus pointing horizontally? I'm thinking of using the "cookie tin" style heater with a bulb for the winter, and I really like the nipple watering concept. I'm picturing a concrete block (or bricks as a base), then the cookie tin, and then the bucket. However, the two do not mesh according to all the nipple installations I've seen. I understand that having the nipples on the side will allow some water to be left at the bottom of the pail, but I'm guessing (since I haven't seen one in person yet) that this is the case with the models I've seen online, since the nipple must stick up into the pail a little bit. If they would not function horizontally, does anyone have any simple ideas for using the nipple system on a pail throughout freezing temperatures without running heat-tape or something like that? I'm trying to completely plan and prepare my coop (converted storage shed) before I go to pick up the chicks for the brooder. Thank you for your time spent reading and/or responding in advance and thank you to everyone for all the great ideas, suggestions, and opinions posted on this site.
