    I'm thinking of using an ice tray for my waterer next week when my chicks hatch. I figure that the cube size is just big enough to drink out of without the threat of drowning. Has anyone tried this? How did it work out? What are some of your favorite more creative homemade waterers for chicks?

    Sounds good if you can keep them out of it and keep bedding out of it. My favorite chick waterer is the poultry nipples screwed into any container you please...keeps bedding dry, water clean and they love to peck at them. Oh, if I had only known about them years ago, how much mess and work I could have saved myself!


    They even have them now from Premier1...finally getting on the band wagon of chick watering, they are.
