Please can you tell me what you all use for baths for your chickens, Ive just got mine a bath and going to build them a ramp into it but not sure as I have chickens as well and dont want them to get into it, anyone got any suggestions, this is the bath they had before, its good but a nightmare to empty

I just use one of the those snaplock pools. To empty it all you have to do is push down one of the sides. I have a ramp going in and a cinder block in the pool to 'rescue' any chickens that manage to fall in.

I used a cement mixing tray in my ducks pen (they have a pond in the garden when I let them out to free range)

I know that link is from an English company but I'm sure you should be able to get something similar from your hardware stores. I put a large rock in the bottom at one side to allow the ducks to be able to hop out and I dug it into the ground so they can just belly flop in and cause a wave of water to splash out and make mud puddles

. You can see the bath in the below picture (excuse the mucky ducky), it is easy to empty out, I take a couple of large buckets of water out and it is then easier to lift out and tip the water onto the garden.

Your picture didn't work for me. I have several things actually, the main are 50GAL troughs(like waterers for livestock) kiddy pools, ... plus large livestock rubber bowls are well liked too.

The pic is showing a real small one but imagine a large one, that is just the quickest pic i had lol
