Description

Muddy Hill Farm is proud to bring to market an improved no drip drinker nipple that installs into the side of a container.

Having tried nearly every type of drinker for his flocks of chickens and ducks Barry Chenkin, the proprietor of Muddy Hill Farm, decided it was time to make something that really worked.

This drinker nipple’s unique shape allows it to be easily screwed into place on the side of the container. The top and bottom are shaped like big wings making it easy to grasp and twist into place. The cup under the pin provides an area for the water to collect in as the bird moves the pin. The o-ring on the liquid side of the drinker nipple is kept seated by the tension of the spring inside until dislodged by the birds pecking actions.

DO NOT screw Sideways Sipper Drinker Nipple in all the way!  Leave two or three of the threads showing OUTSIDE the container for a better seal. Running the nipple right up against the plastic wall of your container may break the sealing properties of the threads. You may find that if they do leak between the container and the Sideways Sipper Drinker Nipple you can place a bit of silicone to seal it.

Clean water = a healthy flock:

  • Change your water at least weekly, but more often in hot weather as chickens prefer cool water to warm water.
  • Clean the bucket and Sideways Sipper Drinker Nipple with soap and warm water weekly to minimize bio-film build up.

Yes it is Patent Pending for the design 🙂

Additional Information

You can use an 11/32 or 3/8” drill bit when installing into thin walled plastic containers.

If you are installing into thicker plastic like PVC: use a 3/8” drill bit with a 27 Thread Tap. If installing into a 55 gallon plastic barrel the amount of pressure might be a bit strong behind it. We suggest a bit of silicone caulk on the threads as you screw it in.

Make sure you have a clean hole with no burrs or rough edges.

DO NOT screw Sideways Sipper Drinker Nipple in all the way! Leave two or three of the threads showing OUTSIDE the container for a better seal. Running the nipple right up against the plastic wall of your container may break the sealing properties of the threads. You may find that if they do leak between the container and the Sideways Sipper Drinker Nipple you can place a bit of silicone between them for a water tight seal.

Installing the Sideways Sipper Drinker Nipple about 1.5” up from the bottom of the container allows any contaminants to settle to the bottom out of the way. It also adds a bit of weight so if the container gets bumped or landed on it is less likely to tip over.

The ideal placement is to have the nipple at about the same height as their back. So either elevate the container or drill your holes higher up on the container. Placing them at different heights if you have different breeds is very acceptable and a logical solution compared to vertical nipple products.

FAQ's

Q) Can I use Apple Cider Vinegar in the water or other chemicals?
A) No. We only suggest clean, clear water without additives of any kind.

Q) It is leaking a little bit between the container and the Sideways Sipper Drinker Nipple
A) We see this issue when folks are using a drill bit just a bit too large, they have screwed it in so the back of the Sideways Sipper Drinker Nipple is right up against the wall of the container and when installing into a very thick walled container (like a 55 gallon plastic drum). If you do get a leak from between the container wall and Sideways Sipper Drinker Nipple place a dab of silicone in the gap between the back of the Sideways Sipper Drinker Nipple and wall of the container for a water tight seal.
Q) Can I install this into plastic pipe like PVC?
A) Yes you can. We suggest you increase the size of the hole to 3/8” and use a 27 thread tap.

    We have had really cold weather this past few weeks (-30c) and I have been raving about your nipple drinkers and have have zero freezing issues!! I just use a bucket de-icer, safe to use in plastic, place the bucket on a block and keep it out of the wind.
