    Can anybody give me some ideas about how to switch my hens from their current watering system to the one with the cups hooked up to water source? We have the cups set up but so far the Chickens don't seem to impressed LOL.
    Was going to post a picture of the cups but can't figure out how to do that yet. LOL Still new on this site.
    Thanks for any help!

    I would show them the cups and move the water around with your finger so they can see what it is. You should only need to show one or two birds and the others will follow. Remove their current waterer as they will continue to drink from their current waterer unless they are forced to drink elsewhere.
