Hello Fellow Flocksters, I know this is could be a subjective/senstive issue but I am curious as to what ya'll recommend for water founts. I am over-the-top frustrated with a certain brand of poultry products made in Minnesota. The founts are very pricey and we treat them well but they seem to last about a year and then begin to leak and become difficult to separate to fill. The farm and ranch supply stores here in the Rocky Mountain region offer nothing else so we are held hostage to one particular brand. I gave up on their one-gallon watering pails as those broke as fast as I could buy them. Looking forward to your insights! /Indy P.S. I should note that we have two separate breeding clans comprised of over 40 birds.
