I've got 25 almost 3 week old chicks I'm moving from the basement cardboard box(es) brooder to a 8x6x3 brooder I built in one of our horse stalls in the barn. I've read do's and don'ts on using adult waterers for chicks, the primary concern being drowning or getting too wet and consequently cold. I'd like to use this 5 gallon adult waterer, if permissible. It has a 2" lip, and looks 'safe' to me, but this is my first time raising chickens. I could see them getting wet and then chilled, possibly. What are your experiences with these, and what would y'all recommend?
Thanks in advance for help and/or suggestions!
