CHICKEN WATERER

Just saw your watering system today. Two weeks ago when I bought baby chicks I got a pet rodent watering hanging bottle. The chicks don't even know how to drink out of a dish(which was always a catastrophy of spilled water and wet bedding. Will really consider this for our layers.

Chickens seem to need the smaller nipples to really be able to drink. It took Mark a lot of experimentation to get it right! We're still thrilled by the waterers sitting in our tractors.
