DIY Poultry Nipple Drinker Stand

DIY Poultry Nipple Drinker Stand via The Chicken Chick®
When it comes to supplying clean water to chickens, there is no question that poultry nipple drinkers are the gold standard. Baby chicks are given the best possible start in life with access to clean water 100% of the time with the use of nipple drinkers. Chicks very naturally take to nipple drinkers, so training isn't an issue- my challenge has always been in finding up a system for holding the drinker inside the brooder, particularly when using a soft-sided brooder such as a puppy playpen or cardboard box. The solution? A tomato cage! Read on for directions to build your own!
