I love them! The feed buckets and the rubber teats work great. I have used many different types of feeders over the years and this is by far the best yet. The ease and durability is outstanding. We have been using two buckets with red rubber teats feeding ten bum lambs for a month now with no problems at all. Excellent product.

These red rubber teats seem well made but my lambs preferred the natural latex teats at 20 days of age.
I bought both kinds because the rubber is supposed to be tougher, and is, but so far I am
keeping my lambs on the softer teats. They are
28 days old now, I will have to try the rubber teats again because the lambs do try to chew.

Durable and easy to use.

Difficult for very young kids but perfect teat for older kids, especially those that fight over the bucket teats. Durable and long lasting.

I switch to these rubber nipples when the lambs start biting holes in the latex nipples, unless the lambs are particularly small, then I just sigh and keep replacing the latex nipples until they get a mouth big enough to use the rubber. The lamb seems to need to be a certain size mouth before they can use the rubber nipples. I also watch the lambs, to make sure all have managed to figure out the rubber nipples, before just hanging the bucket and walking away. I've also found that if the lambs are getting enough milk, that is when they tend to destroy the rubber nipples on me. I found it was important, if it is free choice milk, that the milk is always there. However, there was this one lamb who would go through a nipple in one use--I just elected to wean that lamb earlier and all was well.
