For my cockatiels!!!
Awesome! I was looking for something convenient to provide my flock of 12 cockatiels with up to 8 babies and fledglings with a sufficient supply of fresh water. Cockatiels will turn a water dish/cup into a toilet in short order throwing everything in it.
There is enough capacity in this nipple drinker to provide them with clean water for 2 days. I didn't realize how much water they drink.
I only wish I we could have discovered this nipple drinker years ago. I started to think outside the box and found this. They place they stick their beaks under the nipple, opening their mouths pressing against it letting the water flow into the lower part of their beaks. The fledgling have adapted to it without a problem.
It is easy to fill and rinse out. I intend for find a small floating bright colored ball to place on top of the water to more easily see the water level.
I intend to introduce it my local pet store that I supply my cockatiels to. Maybe they will offer it.

I purchased 2 of these entire set ups the ones that included the black mounting brackets and they work beautifully. The reason I bought 2 units is because I hatch both full size and Bantam size chicks in the same brooder. I put one of the units up high for the larger chicks and I mount the other one lower so that the smaller chicks can reach.

I don't have any more chicks in the brooder for this year but I ordered these for adult bantam pairs. I love these waterers. I have them attached to the outside of the coop with just the nipple hanging inside. No roosting on it so it stays clean and the easy fill top makes watering a lot faster. No leaks and the whole top comes off for easy cleaning. I will be ordering more for chicks next spring and will continue to use them for the adult bantam breeds, as well.

Using in rabbit hutches for mom and baby chicks. Wound up with 4 batches this year. Showed one chick how to use it and the rest followed suit instantly. Even ma hen figured it out. Ordered 2 originally. One per hutch. Worked so well (I wish they were bigger) and bought 4 more. Now have two per hutch and holding up great! No more messy dumped waterers.

This has been the most helpful accessory for raising chicks. I don't really know how I ever did without it. It eliminates water all over the litter and the need to change more frequently. Also there is no poop in the water thus keeping the chicks healthier. I have six of these now.
