    Just bought some nipples off ebay for 10.99 and i got 40 nipples. i will be getting some pvc and hose to connect the 5gal buckets to the pvc and nipples attached to the PVC. very cheap and easy but takes a couple hours of installment. will post pictures with the final product.

    There are many threads in this forum on using every kind of water nipple and cup that is currently available. Do a search for nipple waters, my forum name --loneoak-- a friend --Jimmywalt, or just scan over 4 or 5 pages of post in this sub forum "Feeding & Watering Your Flock" and you will see and read about many more forms of waters than I could tell you about with 5 hours of typing.

    Personally I really like the Horizontal nipples that are beginning to show up more and more. Search then out and check em out before you build your system. Most people find that the standard nipples like you bought off ebay are way to messy and leave a puddle underneath them in your pen or coop.
