    That is so neat! Congratulations!

    Question, how come you put marbles in the water?

    The marbles are in there so the baby chicks can't drown in the water...

    I thought the marbles were there so the chicks could see the water.

    It is for both. I do use the same thing. It also attracts them to the water also. Gets them drinking.
