Water

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi my question is how much water do 15 eight and seven week old pullets take a day. I have a 3 gallon waterer, today around 1:30 PM I noticed the water was empty I refilled it and at 6 o'clock I noticed that most of the water is now gone not even a gallon is left so my question is how much water do they consume a day

Thanks

3 gallons should be plenty. . Are they leaking

my guess is they are probably knocking out water, my 20 chicks, ages 1 week to 9 weeks went through a 1 gal waterer about every other day.

She only has 15. And going thru 3 times what your 20 is using

If the waters aren't level they will run out..

I have it set up on brick so it's pretty level I'm having trouble getting my husband to hang a chain so that it would hang down along with the feeder
