Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens book tells us to clean the waterer with bleach. Well my chicks are very messy, always getting the litter in it and pooping. My roo-think its a roo-has been caught on top of it twice. But I have watched them and they ALL make it messy. So I am trying to keep their brooder as clean as possible since I don't want disease. Well I just finished cleaning everything and I did as the book suggested. Here is the problem-the waterer now smells like bleach even though I thoroughly rinsed it out. How do you guys clean your waterers? Bleach or no? Are my chicks going to be okay? And last but not least how do I keep them from pooping in it? I have read forums on the poop thing but I can not suspend it above the floor.
