Your completed waterer will also be able to be placed directly on the ground for refilling and cleaning. Make Your Own Waterer Kit with Horizontal Side Mount Chicken Nipples. Turn your cooler, PVC pipe, 55 gallon rain barrel, 5 gallon bucket etc. into a highly efficient chicken waterer.
Different with vertical nipples, ours innovative water nipples feature an unique horizontal design that will not drip or leak like vertical nipples tend to do, and, because no water is stored in the nipple unit even when your bucket or drinker is full of water, they won't freeze during the winter provided you're heating your water supply.
Apart from other horizontal nipples you'll find elsewhere, ours are made with high-density plastic, super heavy duty!
Another benefit of using nipple drinkers vs. traditional tray-based watering systems is that you also have the option to place your chosen waterer on the ground, rather than hang it--a big bonus for many of you who have coops or runs that can't accommodate the weight of hanging systems, and easier refilling and cleaning.
Chickens easily learn how to use them and you can feel confident that your birds are drinking clean water. The tapered thread makes it a breeze to install and easier to maintain.
