    I have converted all my quail and chicken to "rodent" bottles. I did not have a lot of problem converting them either. With some of the waters the birds had problems pushing in the balls. When I made sure not to have spring loaded balls I had zero issues. You do want to make sure they are drinking from it. Once it is installed we squeezed it a little bit so the water dripped and they figured it out very quickly. Once a few did it they all followed. My chickens, coturnix, and buttons all drink from them. This one doesn't look like a ball tip so I'd just be sure that the birds you are using it for are strong enough to push it.
