Hello from Huntsville, TX My wife and I are raising chickens from chicks for the first time starting today! This site has been incredibly helpful for gathering information so I figured, Why not join?! We are starting with four chicks in a brooder box made from a plastic tub with a heat lamp in the lid. The only question I have is whether a bowl would be ok to source water for now? I bought a 1 gallon drinker but it just takes up too much space in the box. I will use it in the coop when we move the chicks outside.
