    I want to make a nipple waterer for my chickens. I was looking at the different types but I was wondering if I could use rabbit nipples for chickens because I like how they attach. Here is the link to the ones I found.


    Should I try them or should I just get the screw in nipples?

    Those should work just fine! Chickens are interested in weird stick things, and in turn will peck at it to find water that drips out. They will catch on to it quickly and it should work just fine. Just make sure that you get more than one!
