Pritchard Teat Nipples

Specially designed for orphaned lambs. Shaped like a ewe's nipple. The metal leak-proof flutter valve inside allows air to flow in smoothly but controls milk flow and prevents collapse.

Slice the tip with a razor or scissors to create the appropriate opening size. Screws on to most plastic pop/soda bottles.

These are the original Pritchard nipples from New Zealand.

    "Pritchard Nipples"

    Excellent! In ten years it's the only nipple I've used consistently with my goats. Bottle babies adapt quickly n thrive when raised on Pritchard. Jeffers carries a higher quality of this nipple than I can get in a chain store.

    "Pritchard Lamb and Kid Teat Nipples"

    These are great products for bottle feeding my goats. Be careful about mistakenly buying the knock-offs sold at TS. They do not have the little ball for a valve and leak like crazy. These don't leak a drop.

    "Best Nipple for Goat Kids"

    We have raised a number of bottle baby goat kids in the last 20 years, and the Pritchard Nipple is the best we have found for starting newborns on a bottle.

    "tip tips"

    don't cut the tip off...its better to use very very sharp pointed knife or razor blade and slit the tip lengthwise up the center approximately 1/8 inch more or less....this preserves the natural nipple valve action and prevents lambs/kids choking when they try to breathe....test the action by sucking the nipple and enlarge slightly if necessary by cutting a slight bit further...always rinse after every use to prevent air breather passage clogging

    "Feeding Newborns"

    We use an oral dose syringe and it inserts perfectly into the nipple for feeding newborns. We can see exactly how much they are eating and can push a few drops at time into their mouths until they get the hang of it.

    Only nipple I use and trust! Beware of imitations made of cheaper materials!

    "Good for babies, not for older animals"

    I have found these nipples to work very well on newborn kids and lambs, but after a few days the kids/lambs are too rough on them. I prefer switching to the black soda bottle nipples. I try to keep one of these on on hand for very new babies, but don't use them long.

    "Wish they made a bigger size"

    I do like these nipples! I have weak wrists and the pull on ones are hard on plastic bottles and tend to collapse on glass bottles. Pritchards screw right on! Just don't misplace that little ballbearing in the air hole or your nipple will run wild and be ruined! I truly wish there was a size larger to use on bigger livestock like my older boer kids.

    "excellent"

    this is a very good item for lambs and kids...don't make the opening too big or they will choke and get pneumonia and die....2 liter bottles are far too unwieldy to use, i use an empty thoroughly cleaned plastic rubbing alcohol bottle that is about 2/3 of a quart and it works very well

    "easy to use"

    I tried another nipple that was supposed to screw on a soda bottle, impossible to get onto the bottle without someone else to hold it. The pritchard nipples are easy to use and my lambs take them great.

    "Lifesaver!"

    In response to the folks who can't get the nipples to flow, just cut a tiny bit off the tip of the nipple and it works fine. We use these only for our Nubian kids as the other types are too thick to enable suckling easily.

    "No flow~"

    I simply can't figure these nipples out. I've purchased so many now and when you first get them there is NO FLOW! I have made tiny holes in the end and still no flow. Then I've made slightly larger holes in the tip and the milk just flows freely so the goat doesn't have to suckle, just sit there and let the milk flow in! I tried poking a paper clip through the air hole and a metal ball few out and milk flowed then from the nipple end and the air hold and milk went all over the place. I'm really stuck with how to get these things to deliver milk only when the goat suckles on it and not just from tipping the bottle upside down. Any suggestions!

    "The best!"

    We've used these nipples for years for bottle feeding our nigerian dwarf kids. From newborn to weaning, we've never found a better nipple. Love the fact that it works so well for newborns and doesn't choke them.

    "Feeding Orfans"

    We have found this to be the best nipple out there for feeding newborn kids. They accept the nipple faster than others. Milk flow is more even, and don't choke as easily as with other nipples we have tried.
