    will my hens go to the nipple watering system if they never have used one before?

    Yes nipples! It took my juveniles a day to figure out their waterer, and 5 seconds for them to begin pecking the nipples. I left the old one in for awhile and then slowly took it out for longer and longer periods of time. They'll use it as long as you don't give them a choice
