Now when they splash and play in the water it falls down in the plastic tote bin.

No more water mess ! They figured it out
I like this kind from Walmart there more stout and they have a 1/2" square lip on the top "which helps keep the mess inside the container". Just cut out the inside 2 pieces but leave the center and outsides for strength.
The smaller hole hardware cloth from tractor supply.
After I cut out the inside plastic pieces I cut out 2 pieces of hardware cloth "most of them on Pinterest just had one but I wanted to be safe"
Then I stapled all the way around the inside.
I put more staples in with the second piece of hardware cloth. Which is Wierd that they call it cloth cause it's wire lol.
I pushed the staples all in tight
Now we have a wonderful row of little pokies !
It took a while lol
Whola now we won't get a surprise every time we take off the lid !
Ok now I taped the inside edges over the staples so they don't cut up their feet
It's pretty tall for the little guys right now so I leveled it in the center and added shavings around it so they don't get stuck on the side.
And they like it ! And I love it no more cleaning out all the shavings in the brooder twice a day !!!!!
