I have a 5 gallon waterer for the ducks and the chickens at night--it gets cleaned and filled every 2 days.(they empty it) during the day they drink from a pot with water or the pond. I have a one gallon for 9 chicks that are 7 weeks old, they go thru that every 2 to 3 days.

When I had 12 it seem to go about a week till it need to be filled However I often had to clean the water in the drinking ring. The amount of time it takes for that to get dirty varies with where it is.

In the summer I'd put fresh in there every day so you make sure they don't run out of water, and bleach it out every 2 weeks (rinse very well).

In the winter I'd just keep it topped off and bleach it every month. But the water needs dumping out of the drinking trough part daily.
