I want to set up automatic chicken waters in my coop and run.  Does anyone have experience with nipple waterers?

We used a 5 gal bucket in complete shade that fed the water pipe that was opaque and fitted with nipples that were also in shade, so we did not have an algae problem in the water for our ladies.  The nipples were wonderful for providing water without getting poo'd upon :)

Sorry no one has added any comments. I purchased a package at SHOPPERS some time ago but have not installed them. In the past I have found that letting the chicken water stand it turns green quickly. I made a water container out of a 5 gal bucket. I had to clean it out ever few days. So I am not quite sure of the nipples.

Hope someone with experience adds to this.
