Horizontal Drip-Catch Nipples
Water nipples for chickens, ducks and other poultry. Side-facing with drip-catch design to reduce moisture build-up in the coop.
Horizontal nipples take a firmer peck to activate than vertical nipples. They're best used for stronger flock members and not young chicks.

Note: The exact number of birds to water is difficult to determine as there are many factors that influence intake; salt and protein levels in the diet, humidity, temperature, productivity (growth or egg production) and the birds ability to process feed and water.

So far, so good. We had the “under bucket” nipples, the girls had no issues or adjustments needed to the horizontal nipples.

Chickens didn’t seem to like these.

As the largest breeder of Silkie chicks and hens in the Northeast I can attest to the quality of Premier’s products over the knockoffs available on Amazon from replacement nipples, waterers and heated waterers. We normally have 750–1000 chickens on our farm we use their waterers in all of our pens in our hatchery as well as our barn for our own breeding flock in our barn.

After trying different watering systems and nipples for my hens, this is by far the best.

I bought a heated waterer in the fall of 2021. It worked well until March 2022 when one of the nipples started leaking and could not be stopped. How is this supposed to be fixed... order new nipples? Quality of the nipples needs to be addressed. Not recommended because of the cost compared to its dependability.
