Chicken Nipple Waterer Tips

Premier's Heated Poultry Water, Chick Nipple Waterer and Bucket Nipple Waterer

For those having trouble getting their chickens to drink from a nipple type waterer, here are a few tips:
  • Remove alternative sources of water. If a trough type is available, chickens will use it instead of the nipple drinker. 
  • Tap the nipple with a finger. The resulting sound and water drop will draw the birds' attention—they will investigate the source. 
  • Take a bird and hold its head to the nipple. Touch its beak to the nipple so the animal knows where to get water.
