    Try www.jefferslivestock.com

    I highly recommend this company and order all my dog and cat supplies from them. Good prices, excellent shipping.

    I order salmon oil for the dog on a regular basis from Jeffers.
    I am always amazed that my order is delivered in two days time, three tops.

    Jeffers, Premier (LOVE THEM!), Nasco, Tractor Supply, your local feed store, they're all good.

    If you're in a pinch, you can just use regular baby bottles until your other nipples come in.

    Tractor Supply Co carry them in their stores. They are located with the animal medicines. I think theirs are yellow and red and fit on soda bottles.

    I like jeffers too. The prichard's teats seem to work better than goat nipples from my experience. If you don't like those, then just try a regular baby nipple. I have never had good luck with goat nipples. The smaller ones work better for our goats.

    I've always had good luck with the lamb nipples used in bucket-feeding. You can get them at any feed store, they're really cheap, and they fit perfectly onto a washed soda bottle. [​IMG]

    thanks I bought some last year but don't remember where. I only had 4 babies last year I have six does bred this time so I need to make another bucket or two.
