Will guineas use nipple waterers?
yep. it may take some time for them to discover them though. depends on age.
What is the best way to get birds to discover them?
I'm thinking of switching to nipple waterers, too - or at least have one handy because I go out of town occasionally. Here's what I might do: Have both types of waterers available for a while until they get skilled at getting to the water in the new one. Even then I might leave both out JIC. I won't switch to the nipple waterer without having the familiar one around though. With guineas...everything should go slow. They aren't bright, and they hate change.
the color red is helpful. they will peck red stuff.
you could try something food like around the nipples and see if they take the bait.
Thanks Leonphelps. Red is a good suggestion. Guineas do peck at color!
