    Not sure, but with my chicks.....I have had good luck with the DIY watering cups. They figured it out real quick.

    I made a vertical nipple bucket for mine at 3 weeks. But the local feed store uses them for day old chicks. Mine figured it out right away. I love it.....water stays perfectly clean.
    Here's a video of a couple of them at 6 wks using the bucket....
