    That looks clean! Well, the red should get their attention. Sometimes it takes a few tries before they get new things down, so don't give up yet!

    I have a dine a chook too. I just dipped the tip of each of their beaks in the water a couple of times over a day or two, then left them to it. After a couple of days once I'd seen every chicken use them I removed their old water source. No issues. Probably didn't even need to do the dip.

    Enjoy, it's a good system.
