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.
- Type: Lamb Nipple
"Great for Goats!"
I love this product! These are by far the best nipples for bottle feeding kids. They are the right size for their mouths and you can control the size of your opening by where you snip the tip. I had tried a couple different kinds without success, when I had to take a sick baby goat to the vet school for treatment and these were the nipples they recommended for bottle feeding kids. They are very easy to use. Just screw it on to a 20 ounce coke bottle and you?ÇÖre ready to go. My only complaint is that it does seem to be easy for the little metal ball to fall out. So watch out for that. The price is so reasonable I usually just buy about 10 to keep them on hand. Defiantly a must have for your emergency kit if you plan on raising baby goats or if you choose to bottle feed.
These are our nipples of choice for our bottle kids. They easily fit on a soda bottle, which you can get in several different sizes, making heating up just the right amount very convenient. You can adjust the size of the opening by how far down you cut the tip. We have found that some of the Coke brand bottles do not have the correct threading. And be sure not to lose the metal ball under the lid when cleaning.
