    I have found the perfect waterer. It works great and isn't messy at all. I have had it in with my goslings all day and it hasn't made a mess nor does it have tons of food in it. What I did was take a normal gallon milk carton and cut a hole in it just big enough for them to get their heads in. I will try to get a picture later if you would like.

    that is a great Idea. I would however place some shavings down for your babies, as the wire floor can hurt their poor little feet. [​IMG]

    They actually have half their cage with soft hay. The only side with wire holds their food and water.
