 Royal Rooster is proud to be the exclusive Australian distributor of these European made, side-mounted drinker nipples.

While we've been selling the popular quality Lubing drinker cups for many years, we've been searching for a nipple type of drinker, for those who prefer this, that doesn't drip and doesn't freeze in winter.

No drip nipple

Traditional, vertical poultry nipples that are mounted on the bottom of a drinker container, hold water inside the nipple and work with gravitational pull. Often these don't shut off properly and backyard chickens owners have a dripping mess inside their chicken coop.

These revolutionary horizontal nipples are spring loaded and are activated when the chickens’ pecking wobbles the spring. This then releases drops of water into the chicken’s beak or into the small molded drip guard beneath the nipple. 

Do not freeze

As no water is stored in the nipple even when your bucket or drinker is full of water, they won't freeze during the winter. This means that those in a very cold climates can use a submersible water heater in their drinker set up and know that the chickens will still be able to gain access to their water source, unlike vertical nipples.

Chicken Training

To get chickens to start using these drinkers, tap on the stainless steel part of the nipple to allow a small amount of water to fill the drip guard so the chickens can see and smell the water. For those chickens whom have a difficult time locating the water, just put a bit of chicken feed onto the nipple so they are attracted to it and start to peck around. When the water comes out, they soon get the idea! It's important to take out other drinkers so they are not tempted to go back to their old setup.

Age of Chickens

These drinker nipples can be used for chickens 10 days old and onwards.

Installation

To install these into a bucket or alternative drinker set up, you'll need a 3/8 drill bit. No thread is necessary, as the nipples are designed to be screwed in by hand and will be water-tight.

Alternatives

If you need less than 10 drinker nipples, please view our other '5 pack' product listing. We also offer these on our drinker tubes for a complete, ready to use drinker solution for your chickens.

Delivery Time:

These drinker nipples are generally dispatched 2-3 days after an order is received.
