    Dove,

    I find the small round ones easier to clean as they fit in the sink better. It depends also, on how many chicks you plan on having.

    I prefer the large plastic ones because I have many chicks at one time they are easy to clean but since they are big more dirt gets into them. So if you don't have many use the metal. They are about the same on cleaning.

    I'll have less than 10.
