    I give my birds a pool to wade around in when it's hot, but dang, I wish they wouldn't defecate in it! After an hour or two it becomes a cesspool. You definately need to dump the water and replace often, or it could become a breeding ground for disease. One of my hens would get in and within minutes lay an egg in the water. Must be very stimulating![​IMG]
