Horizontal Drip-Catch Nipples
Water nipples for chickens, ducks and other poultry. Side-facing nipple ensures water stays fresh and clean. Drip-catch design reduces 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.

Worked well. Installed them in a 3/4" schedule 40 PVC pipe for meat chickens supplied the pipe with 5 gallon bucket. Makes the daily chores much easier. They appear to be made sturdy and do not leak.

Perfect fit and easy to replace the damaged nipple.

My wife has a heated winter water bucket with three of these nipples. Recently the pin fell out of two of them resulting in an empty bucket! These nipples are perfect; I simply unscrewed the old ones and threaded in the new ones.
Upon examination of the one remaining old nipple, I confirmed that the failure is that a small o-ring that both seals the nipple and serves to retain the pin against the spring force. That ring apparently dries out and cracks over time, resulting in the pin ejecting itself! Based on that observation, I’ve decided that I need to keep a small stock of replacement nipples handy at all times. It’s tough keeping the birds watered in the New England winter otherwise.

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