    When compared to my BA and banty Leghorn, my wo 20 week-old BRs hardly dring water at all.
    Is this a Rock thing??? Why the difference if they're on the same food?

    Thanks in advance

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. As long as they have free access to it, they'll drink all they need. Its possible they are drinking more at times you are not there to watch them.
