    Since I have been having lots of sickness in my coop, I decided to switch to a nipple waterer yesterday, I have heard that they are cleaner. I purchased my Chicken Kooler at attwoods. Only about 10 of 63 chickens know how to use it, how can I teach them to use it?

    Have you taken away any other sources of water? If not then why should they learn to use it unless they have to.

    As long as you have some that are using it the others should figure it out if they get thirsty enough

    Most learn very quickly, like in minutes.

    How long have they been without water?
