Buy the time their a month old you'll be filling them 3 or 4 times daily, you need something bigger!
I went to tractor supply co and bought the 32 oz. rabbit water bottles. I have 4 white leghorns that are about 4 months old and they go through almost one bottle a day. I also feed fermented feed with a bit of extra water in it so that may cut down on their water intake some. If you go this route just be sure to check them daily for dripping or hang an extra bottle in case.
I think my chickens are inept. They try putting their whole beak around it and then give up.... : (
Quote: They aren't made or designed to water chickens. You need to be using something that is designed to be a waterer for chickens and then you will have much better results.
Simply do a google search or ebay search for chicken waterer and you will find lots and lots of the correct options. Do the search before you go to the store so you will know what to shop for and don't let the sales person point you to the rabbit waterer.
