    Hi all! I am preparing to build my coop, and wanted to make my own watering system. Sounds like the waterer nipples are the way to go. I found some on ebay that are called ND-R1 Heavy Duty Waterer Nipple (from cconly). They seem reasonably priced with free shipping. I was wondering if anyone has used these - reviews sound like the seller is legit, but I trust you all and wanted your opinions. Thanks!

    I hope they're good... I ordered 10 from him yesterday! Within a few hours all the 'paperwork' was through and confirmed that he's ready to ship.

    Please let us know how your purchase goes. I'm thinking of ordering from him as well, although I like the look of the ones that clamp over a piece of garden hose...

    I bought mine form Neil Grasbough (sp?) from this site. Best price around and they worked just as expected.

    Can you get them at pet/livestock supply stores? Or are they only found online?

    Quote:I got mine from Neil as well. His last name is Grassbaugh. Look him up on here and PM him. He has the cheapest price and ships them fast. I have made three waterers so far and love them!! No more cleaning out dirty buckets daily!! I only have to fill the bucket a couple times a week and would have to do less if I had used a 5 gallon bucket!!

    This is the ebay seller I used and he was great. Less than $2 per nipple including shipping.

    I should be getting some from two different sellers on E-bay, some push-in and some screw-in, this week. I get my chilcks next week so I'm anxious to see how they work.
