The other difference between the nipples is where the valve is located which effects how fast they freeze. I have to use a heated watering system here in Chicagoland for both the chickens and the quail in the winter. The vertical nipples have their valve outside the reservoir so they freeze. The side mount horizontal nipples have their valve inside the water tank so the heater, which is warming the water, also keeps them from freezing. Just something to consider if you intend to keep the quail outside all year round.
