    I was looking at the feeder and waterer thread and really liked the waterer with the nipples. I was just wondering how do you train chicks or chicken to use the nipples? [​IMG]

    Anyone that has nipple waterer please do tell how you got them to drink from the nipples.

    I just put mine in with my 2 week old chicks, and after about a minute, 1 pecked at the nipple, and said "Hey, there's water in here!!" After that, they all came over & gave it a try. Within a day, I removed the original waterer.
