I'm thinking about getting a drink cup waterer for my 7 chickens. How many cups do you need? Do they wait their turn or can two drink from a cup at the same time?

Kuntrygirl,

Drinkcups are for the water nipples.They "catch" the excess drips caused by a chicken drinking from the nipples.

And yes, Tracyree, they do tend to hog drink cups.I have 6 water nipples with 6 drink cups for all my birds.There is no fight,nor a line of birds waiting for a drink at the pvc bar.

I'm VERY new to the water nipple systems and still afraid of it.

Ok, I will wait and see. You have never steered me wrong before. You're always right on the money with everything you tell me, so I will wait on you to convince me.


I will be waiting............
