So I received my first Bourbon Red turkey chicks a couple weeks ago. Lost one after two days, but I do have 3 healthy chicks running around. They are about two weeks old now. They have been jumping up on the waterer for about a week now and the pine shavings are always getting wet. I guess they are spilling it out of the waterer? Anyone else have this problem?
I set the waterer in a steel pan/dog dish filled with granite chips. Then they get grit and the water spills into the pan. The waterer stays marginally cleaner too
