I have four 8 week old chicks in my house at the moment (they are new and inside is best place to keep seperate from current flock) and they are kept in my bedroom. At this time, I have a very sick cat and will be spending the night with the cat tonight in my mom's room (she is in bay area right now) to keep an eye on him or an ear out. The chicks are in my bedroom with food, water and all that good stuff. My question: For those of you who brood your chicks out of plain view, how do you do it as safely as possible? I am worried about them tipping their water over, or kicking shavings into their water. The waterer is raised but these girls can KICK! And funnily enough they kick RIGHT where the waterer is, like they are trying to fill the water with shavings. How do you handle that sort of thing? Should I assume all will be fine and check on them as soon as I wake up? It's 10pm here now, and I wake up around 6-7am. IF they tip the waterer over while I am not in the room (therefore won't know) will they be ok if it drains out or something until morning? I am not able to hang the waterer, wish I could but don't think it's doable with the setup I have. Thanks for any tips!
