I saw some at PetSmart...a bit like the ones for chickens...only with a square opening on one side instead of the holder in the middle. Will the water be too shallow for the chickens to drink? Dogs lap it up, so I think it might be different. It holds 3.3 liters...is that enough for 7 bantams? I'm getting them in the spring, and I don't think the water is deep enough to drown chicks. Any dog owners who can offer some advice? The feeder I'm not too worried about, except the same problem about how much it can hold. It's about the same size, don't remember how much it holds, though I'm sure it can be found on the label.
