Hi. I am attempting my first chick raising and am having a problem with their droppings ending up in their waterer. I have been cleaning it out 2x (sometimes 3x) a day and it never fails...within minutes of putting it in their brooder, one of them promptly takes a dump in it! By the second cleaning of the day it is FULL of droppings and rice hulls. I have started noticing that a few of them have runny stools now and am suspcious that this situation might have something to do with it. I'm pretty sure they have enough space, they just poop EVERWHERE! Any suggestions? I've tried forming little cardboard barriers hoping to discourage loitering, but it hasn't worked at all. I was thinking about possibly raising the waterer a bit?...so they can stretch their necks to drink but not their butts up there to poop? My Storey's Guide states that droppings in the water is a sure recipe for disaster with chicks, but doesn't really give any ideas for stopping it. HELP!
