Cheers! So I might seriously need someone to talk me off the ledge here and tell this newbie that chickens are in fact worth owning. I have 5 Wyandotts, almost 6 months, no eggs and a whole slew of non-functioning coop problems. One of my main ones right now is my chickens pooping on the opposite side of my poop board. At one time they were using it... then once we finished their run and have the small door open for 24hr access, they started turning their little selves around on the roost (facing the small door to the left) and pooping all over the bedding. What gives?!?! Additionally, they refuse to use their waterer... it is a nipple waterer following the plans here on BYC.... can chickens not be smart enough to figure out a nipple waterer? Winter is almost here in CO and I need a new watering idea to avoid freezing anyway... preferably one my chickens will actually use haha. Thanks for any tips and tricks!
