I would be interested if any of you use pop bottle waterers or pet bottle waterers for their birds, whether they are in pens or taking them to swaps and such. If so, which do you prefer and why? Thanks.
Bottle waterers designed specifically for dogs seem to work better for me. The tubes are bigger and it seems like the water flow is better. A slightly thirsty chicken will learn really quickly to drink from the bottle.
I have used the nipples before and like them. But the application I want to use is for cages to take to swaps. Yes, I've wondered about the water bottles dripping, plus you have to fill them to the top or they drip to begin with. Enola, thanks for the tip about the dog bottles. I'll look into those.
