    I have adult chickens and I hatch baby chicks. I have reciently decided to use nipple wateres. the chickens dont seem to drink from nipple waterer. Im useing rodent nipple waterer and I will be using the chicken nippler. ,, I would like to see my adult chicken as well as my baby chicks and future baby chicks drink from the nipple drinker.

    is therea way to teach the chicken how to drink from Rodent nipple waterer?

    How can I apply rodent nipple/ chicken nipple waterer to my flock?

    I have
    1- adult leghorn rooster
    2- four adult arabian viliger hens
    3- baby chicks 1week old

    I will be hatching chicks and i will rais some broiler Cornish-rocks.

    Take all other water sources away. They will find it. Even chicks find them.
