Live and learn

Baby chicks figure out nipple waterers within minutes. Literally. We got ours from Farm Tek and made several out of buckets and gallon jugs... This one for the brooder is made from a Gatorade bottle. Adult birds are still working on learning them a month later. Hoping the younger ones will teach them when we start introducing them to the main flock.
Its aggravating having to teach the adult birds how to use it but its worth the effort if it works because there will be no more dirty water to change out every day.
