    Very nice Juan! This is something that's still on my list of things to do.

    I want to ask about the parrot toy I see in the picture...do the chickens play with it? [​IMG]

    Only one of the birds gives it a peck here and there....the others don't care much for it!

    Its funny I have 3 nipple waters in 3 different kinds of containers, milk bottle, pitcher, a soda bottle, and they empty the soda bottle right off and then drink out of the other 2. [​IMG]

    Where do you get the nipples from. They must be low pressure?

    Great idea.

    I have tried 3 different watering devices and no matter what I do or where I hang it, in no time the water looks dirty. Currently I'm using a 2 gallon fount container I picked up at TSC. It works on a vacuum and is galvanized.
    I clean it once a day, and have it hung high enough so they can only get their heads in it.
    I'm thinking its getting dirty from the dirt collected on their feathers and when they bend to get their beaks in, it falls in.

    Dunno!
