Tips for training chooks onto nipples.

The golden rule for teaching birds to use any type of new watering system like nipples is to remove all other sources of water! As long as they have what they are familiar with they will use it first and will never try something new. If their only choice is to drink from that new shiny metal thingy hanging under the pipe or bucket, it will only take one thirsty bird to try it and show everybody elsewhere to get a drink. To teach your birds to use the nipples, remember the golden rule - remove all other sources of water! When installing the new nipple system, simply gather your chooks around and show them by tapping the nipples with your fingers which cause water to leak. That will get their attention and they learn very quickly.

We recommend 3-4 chooks per nipple.

    Saved our summer

    These were brilliant. We used 1 per chook (3). Easy to screw into the 20L bucket at diff heights that we elevated and kept in the shade after our chooks stopping using their gravity feeder in the run. Sparrow proof. Access to larger water volumes keeps water cooler for longer. Chooks took to the drinkers quickly after a few prods.

    Horizontal side mount nipple drinker

    My hens love drinking from these. The sparrows used to soil my open water container. Now I have a large bucket with a lid with these nipples at the bottom and the water says clean and only needs filling up once a week.

    Works like a charm

    This product is cheap and easy to install. We used it to convert an old bucket into a water tank - so the chooks always have plenty of clean water which doesn't get soiled. Our chooks started using it straight away with no trouble.

    side nipple drinkers

    Order received in 2 days, attached as instructed by the simple drilling of a hole and I have had clean water available to my 20 hens ever since. Water stays clean, no cross contamination and they all learns so quickly how to activate it and drink from. Best invention I have had for my hens in 15 years. Thanks
