Have 24 Cornish meat cross chick 3-l/2 weeks old in a brooder area of garage. I am amazed at how much water they go through! I have 2 two gallon metal founts and I fill them at night and early next afternoon and they are always dry!!!. Have put in a large dog waterer with the 5 gallon bottle on top as a stop gap. Of course they kick the wood chip bedding into that and fill it up which makes a mess. But it amazes me they drink so much. Anyone else raising Cornish chicks right now? What size of waterers do you use for how many chicks?
