A week or so ago someone on BYC suggested using a Hamster/Rabbit waterer for my chicks. Well, today I went to the pet store and bought one. I put it in with my 8-9 week old chicks and one of them ran over and started trying to figure the thing out. She couldnt quit figure it out so I showed her a few times. Finally she made it work but the other ones havent really caught on yet. We ended up getting rain showers and I had to bring the chickens back in their brooder. (I know, I know they should already be in their coop. But it is still under construction.) Well I have some questions about the hamster/rabbit waterer.....Should I still leave their regular water down too for the ones who havent figured the hamster/rabbit waterer out yet? Or will they just use the regular waterer over the hamster/rabbit one? Also, is one waterer enough for 6 chickens? Or should I get afew more? For those of you who have used hamster/rabbit waterers for your chicks, how long did it take for your chicks to get the hang of using it? Thanks everyone!
