Ordered 2 of these for our 11 chicks and they are excellent! Water stays clean and doesn’t get spilled. They do drip but only a little bit—not enough to affect the bedding if you stay on top of cleaning the brooder and use some zeolite. As soon as I took the chicks from their shipping box, I touched each of their beaks to the nipple and they immediately caught on. I have a feeling they’d have figured it out on their own anyway! :) Great product and there’s really no reason to use any other kind of waterer!

The chicks didn’t start out with a nipple feeder, though I wish they had. It’s infinitely easier and less messy than the other type. They didn’t need any training. They figured it out in about 30 seconds to a minute. The shininess of the nipple helped with that too. I wish the top wasn’t flat, because they roost on it but it washes easily.

The amount it held was good for about 4–5 days and then I needed a bigger container. Refilling ever 4 hours was tedious. Unfortunately the nipple leaked quite a bit when I tried to clean it, blow it out and rinse it out. But it just wouldn’t stop and had to remove the bedding in the brooder.

Best waterer EVER for chickens in brooder box! No shavings in water or messes or accidental drowning. Perfection! Chicks learned immediately how to use this also.
