I'm going to be bottle feeding the majority of the kids born here next spring, and I'm trying to plan ahead so I'm well prepared. I've heard that many of the bucket feeders have nipples that are too big for nigerians. Does anyone know one that works well for the little guys? I'll be starting them off on individual bottles with pritchard nipples because those have worked well for me in the past, but I'd like to get them on a bucket eventually. Recommendations would be appreciated! :)

I don't think the lambar nipples would be too big, they worked just fine on some 2# boer kids.
But they make a bucket feeder similar to a lambar, check the goat supplies , but its a bucket feeder, not with lamb nipples, but the pritchard nipples.

Thanks! I just found one at Hoegger that has the Pritchard nipples. It looks really simple. I bet I could even make one. I might give it a try.
