    QC Supply has them and their price is pretty reasonable.

    I also vote for QC supply. The shipping charge is reasonable $6, and there is no minimun order. Just talk to a few chicken friends and split an order, and shipping charge.

    I just bought mine from Neil Grassbaugh, a BYC member. Here's his email address:

    '[email protected]'

    He recommends the push-in nipples with grommet for a bucket.

    Here's what I paid:

    NIPPLE DRINKER, PUSH-IN W/ PLASTIC GRAMMET
    Item # IMP10026 $1.65 10 $16.50
    Subtotal $16.50
    Shipping and handling $2.90
    Total $19.40 USD

    I'm getting some from Neil Grassbaugh too. They're going to be fun to experiment with. [​IMG]
