    Ok I seen all these people using nipple waterer. So I built one using a 5 gallon bucket. I've also not seen my chickens use it. Will they learn on there own? :fl

    Make sure the nipple is at eye level and take the rest of the water away.

    Take all other water out and tap on them, their curiosity will get to them and they will come over to investigate, once one figures it out they all will.
