Unlike traditional drinker nipples, these horizontal nipples are spring loaded so that they work without a gravitational pull. The action of the bird's pecking wobbles the spring, which releases drops of water either into the bird's beak or down into the moulded drip guard beneath the nipple. This ensures that birds are provided with a reliable and hygienic water source without the risk of leakages. Easy to fit and widely versatile, side mounted horizontal nipples are handy for a variety of different uses. These nipples are used in the Solway Hanging Nipple Bucket (horizontal). Do not use electric or mechanical drivers to insert these nipples, only use firm hand tightness to make the seal. An insertion tool is available at additional cost but is not essential. Only suitable for juvenile or adult birds, from 10 days onwards.
