Got a batch of cornish cross at 3 weeks, getting ready to put them out in the tractor. Just wondering if they will be able to use the water nipples. exclusively. Ive watched, I know some are using them, but when their out in the tractor, Thats all they will have?

Yes, some take a little longer to learn. Call them over and tap the nipple a couple of times. When they see the water dripping they will get the hint. They also learn from each other so if you have a few that do the others will follow in time. Give it as the only water choice and they have no option but to try it.

The slow learners need an additional two minutes.
