    I marked the gallon waterer where it was exactly so I'd get a good idea on how much they drank in 24 hours. . . Well, our of five chickens they drank hardly anything. . . Im not sure if it's because I kept them cooped up or it's been extra dark any rainy. . .

    The question is-------> Can I leave it there for another day?

    They were locked in the coop that is rain proof, but I was thinking on terms of it being dreary and cold they didn't really have the desire to drink. . . ?
