    What is the proper water pressure for chicken nipples? I'm using the push in type from FarmTek, have them installed in PVC attatched to the garden hose, but the pressure makes it too hard for them to peck at. Anyone know of a cheap way to reduce the pressure? I have a ball valve, barely opened, but after a few minutes the pressure builds.
