It's common for a bead of water to hang off the nipple and occasionally drip. This is common with all types of poultry nipples. When testing this waterer, the drips were not bothersome to neither our birds nor us.
Clean the drinker once a month with chlorine. This is important to keep the nipples clean. Make sure there is no chlorine left in the nipples after cleaning.

I like the fact that I don't have to clean and refill water containers every day for my backyard chickens . It's great !

I made all my nipple waterers and have used for maybe two years. When my friend got this one i could see it was a HUGE improvement! The cover its tightly so it keeps out all the dust. mine would have a film of dust over the top as the lids did not fit tight. this stays clean and i only change the water every 4 days just to keep fresh. NO algae, NO dust. i will gradually keep buying til i have 5....2 in yard, 2 in pen and one for babies when needed. When i am introducing to new babies i teach ONE bird to use it and then they all get it. the nipples do not have to be red. i make sure they see the water by tapping the nipple and then i put their beaks up to it so they know the water comes out...they learn so fast! i also remove all other water and then watch to be sure they know AND i don't do that on the hottest day! i am ordering my second one today!

I purchased this for my seven-week old six pullets who just moved to the coop. So far, it is working great! They learned how to use the nipples in no time at all. I love how it keeps the water clean. I'm not sure how it will hold up in the winter but we will see. I might have to order a second one to keep inside and switch out as needed to keep from freezing.

My 12 pullets figured this out right away. The water stays clean and cold. It is lasting them at least 3 days before I need to change it! I am very happy with this purchase!

we have used several different chicken nipple watering systems and this is by far the best. the recessed nipples and easy lid make all the difference in the world. My only complaint is that there is only one size available and that that one size is so tall. it would be nice to have a 1 or 2 gallon option, so that I can use it in my mobile chicken tractors which are not tall enough to accommodate the height of this waterer.
