    Have you tried nipple waterers? I use those with 5 gallon buckets. Changed my life! Lol.

    I see your post was edited so perhaps there is detail now missing, but from your title I would guess you are using water cups similar to this:

    Is that the case? If so, what are the issues you are having? This type of waterer can take a bit for the birds to get the hang of using, especially at the younger ages.
