How It Works
Nature's Way Waterers utilize a nipple watering system that allows
young birds to peck at the nipples for water, as shown in the
drawing above. In nature, young birds would naturally sip
the dew that accumulates and drips off tree leaves. Our
nipple waterers mimic this natural watering system to provide a
natural, healthy supply of water to birds.
Clean water is the most important
nutrient for your gamebirds. Gamebirds face many challenges
as they survive and grow in the wild. However, they do not
face a problem with clean fresh water, because nature provides dew
drops every morning for several hours. Nature's Way nipple
waterers will provide the same clean, fresh water to each
individual bird, day after day, week after week, without labor to
clean open troughs, cups, or bell-type waterers. The clean,
uncontaminated water is a tremendous advantage in preventing
diseases and parasites that are transmitted from bird to bird.
Nature's Way nipple waterers have advantages over other nipple
waterers. There is no pressure on the water supply inside
the tube. Day-old birds can drink without tiring.
Other systems use a pressure regulator which supplies water under
two to eight pounds of water column pressure. Day-old birds
grow tired of breaking the trip pin and often do not consume as
much water as needed for best performance. Further, litter
will stay drier because there is less waste of water from a
non-pressurized nipple waterer.
The waterer shown in the drawing above is Nature's Way Model #33.
It has three nipples and is approximately three feet long, and is
capable of watering approximately 100 quail.

Nature's Way Waterers can also be used for administering
medication, as shown in the drawing below. Medication of the
smallest flock to thousands of birds is made simple and absolutely
accurate. Birds may be medicated by gravity-supplying the
waterer from a tank of medicated water to the float box, as shown
