Hey folks! So the hardest part is done - I decided on my top 5 favorite breeds for my *first* flock ever, and put the order in this morning! The next three months are going to crawl by...! I'm already looking forward to March when they arrive. In the meantime, I'm trying to get prepared by having all the stuff I need to accommodate baby chicks. I'm currently trying to figure out waterers and feeders. 1) Can anyone tell me the benefits to those trough-like feeders...the long ones with the holes? 2) Which are better, plastic or galvanized steel? Pros and cons of each? 3) I like the look of those jar feeders, but will a heavy glass mason jar be dangerous in a small brooder of baby chicks? Do they ever tip over?? EEK! 4) Finally, I'd like to reuse whatever I can as the chicks grow up...is there a specific kind of feeder or waterer that go with them to the hen house/coop? Thanks so much everybody!!
