    hello I ordered 15 nipple drinkers from QC supply. Will that be enough for exactly 50 chickens? And how on earth do you get them to drink? Maybe some pictures would help if thats easy and handy to you. ANY help is greatly appreciated!!!!!! Thanks [​IMG]

    that should be more than enough thats around 3 chickens per nipple which would be perfectly fine. They shouldlearn to use them on there own, mine did but maybe if they are have trouble try picking them up and showing them how to touch it with there beaks and water will come out. hope that helps [​IMG]
