We had a 4 or 5 gallon white plastic top container with a red round trough that broke so yesterday I bought a 5 gallon galvanized waterer and they won't drink out of it. I've changed to middle of run and lower that before. Nothing. I tied garden hose tot he top with a trickle of water coming down the container into the trough so they see and hear it's water but they just drank from the wet ground, not once from container. Before I painted it white and red like old plastic, I'd like to ask for suggestions. KC hit 100 something today so I need to do something quickly and permanent. The sun degrades the plastic so I like the change but they sure don't. Thanks all.
