    We're concerned our Silkies, Polish and Sultans won't see them as they don't see 'up' so well...Any experience with them and these birds?!?! Thanx in advance!!

    I use them for my Spitzhauben (horizontal nipples) - and I've got a couple hatchery hens that are basically polish (huge crests) and they do fine.

    I wouldn't suggest using vertical nipples (not because of the bird type) because they're just poorly designed, and leak.
