    Do any of you use the nipple watering system for your quail? My question is how high off the screen do you place the nipples for mature birds? Setting up a system and trying to get it right the first time.

    Hello! Yes, i made a nipple system for my hens, it works very well, reduces desease and reduced my water waste .( from not spilling or contaminating it while in the coop) while im not sure about quail, but we have are nipples about eye level for the hens and they have no problems drinking. Hope this helps :)
