    I know this isn't really a chicken question, but I'm hoping someone here might have some suggestions. I have a big metal bowl of water set out for my pig and goose, but the goose keeps going to town on it (dropping in food, bathing, etc. etc.). So, I'm wondering if there's some sort of water dish or something I can use that would stop the goose from fouling it? It'd be a huge bonus if the chickens could use it too...

    Do a search for nipple waterers. I don't think the pig could drink out of it but they make water bottles for dogs similar to the ones for rabbits and guinea pigs that I'm sure a pig could learn to use. I've used them for chickens too.

    I agree w/ dianaross77...Actually, they do make larger size nipples for hogs that might do the trick. Here's the link to the hog waterers at Farmtek.
