    I have 10 button quail chicks, and 2 keep getting soaked somehow! How do I stop this? Yes I have marbles in the water. But they are getting soaked and I keep having to put them in the incubator to dry them off.

    My suggestion would be a smaller waterer. if it's too large, they are going to get wet, marbles or not. Maybe a bottle cap or or lid for tuperware?

    I'll try a peanut butter lid instead of my butter lid, maybe that will be better... Idk, its really shallow..​

    Maybe even something a little more narrow? I'm thinking if you take the option to get in it, they may stay dry? Good luck.
