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.

The product was great, great price, wonderful customer service. The problem occurred with USPS, and I understand that is nothing you can do anything about. USPS has continued to disappoint with their shipping practices.

I tried this product on laying hens about 9 months of age. I called into Premier prior to ordering to ask if the drip catch nipples could be used, connected to the average water line. With an affirmative answer, I purchased and installed the nipples. By the second day a drop in feed consumption was noticed, no eggs the morning of the third day, so other water was made available which the hens quickly drank. My view is that the nipple is just too hard to push or peck to get water under a waterline pressure of 35 lbs or more.

Worked like magic. We showed one chick how to use it and within hours they are all using the nipples.
I did use some pipe joint thread tape around the screw to get a tight leakproof seal.

These are excellent! Drill the hole the correct size, turn them in and fill the container with water. No leaks! I used a salt tank from a water softener. 30 gallons of water for fifty birds. These are the best and the price is great.
