I have finally ordered chicken water nipples. I was so excited! I got a bucket, drill, silicone goop and nipples. I assembled it all together, it didn't leak, I was in business! I was so tired of that galvanized can that they pooped in the tray, it stunk and was sooooo nasty! My girls are 3 years and 1 1/2 years old. I wondered if they would catch on. Hmmmm......... a big blue bucket hanging from the ceiling is a bona-fide chicken eating monster. So I "helped" them a little. I caught a black sex link and positioned her under the blue monster and stretched out her little chicken neck and pecked the nipple with her beak. I made sure she got water on her beak that she tasted. Then I caught a red sex link and did the same thing, then one of the SLW girls. But I didn't know if they really were drinking from the nipples or not. I didn't want to take their yukky galvanized can away if it meant they would go thirsty. So this morning I was in the coop and a red hen started pecking the nipple and drinking! Another red hen cocked her head, watching intently, then tried to drink the drop from the first hen's beak. Silly girl. I yanked that icky 'ol water can outa there!! They all are drinking from the nipples now. All it takes is for one to get brave, then they all want to do it! I put 3 nipples in the bottom of a 5 gallon bucket. I have fittings and PVC pipe that I will connect up and run to the outside of the coop so I can fill it easier. I even have a fitting I can screw directly to the water hose. I love my chicken nipples!!
