How to Use
Set the waterer so the nipples are just above head height—the birds should stretch up slightly to drink.
Handle is used to carry the bucket (unplugged) to and from a hydrant for filling. Some may find the bucket handle fits too loosely underneath the lid. For a better fit, gently squeeze the top of the bucket inward while attaching the lid. The lid will snap into place over the handle.
Chickens will take to the nipple drinkers more readily when there is no other water source available. We recommend removing your current waterer and placing the new waterer in the same location. Then, bring a bird’s beak directly to the nipple drinker and flick/activate the nipple to demonstrate the new water source.

I've only had it a few weeks, but it's worked fine so far. Seems a little pricey for a plastic unit, but it is well made and has worked so far.

I've had this waterer about 2 weeks. It arrived during a cold snap so I put it to use right away. It has been great to no longer deal with frozen water. I also love the fact that the water stays clean. I showed a few of the chickens how it worked and by the 2nd day they all seemed to have caught on. The negative is not being able to carry it by the handle when the lid is on, but since I carry the water to it anyway, that's not a big deal. It's a good size for 14 hens.

Maybe someone can help me out. The water is not freezing so that's good, but the nipples keep freezing stuck so they can't drink the water inside.

I love this waterer. It is a snap to fill and stays clean. There is nothing worse than dealing with foul water in the winter. We've had sub zero temperatures and it works like a charm. I only wish it could be hung but the listing is clear that you cannot hang it up by the handle.

Have been searching for a way to keep CLEAN chicken water available to peeps in the winter. Saw this one accidently and ordered it. I'm in love! Chickens haven't taken to it yet since they are not used to nipples but I keep working with them and know they will figure it out. I love this waterer because it keeps the water clean, unfrozen, holds enough for flock and is easy to tend. My lid fits fine and snaps on when I get it in the right position. I would recommend this to others but if your peeps haven't used nipples before, you might be over stressed. I would buy another and will probably switch other waterers over to nipples.
