when will baby chicks not drown in water?
*Well, sure. But, what do you mean? Bathing them? Raining on them? Falling into their waterer?
falling into there waterer
What the heck is 'weared' ?
oops sorry i spelled things wrong i was in a hurry!
i kept marbles in my chicks waterer until they were about two weeks old. i use one of those plastic things, with the container that screws into a shallow dish, the kind you get at the feed store.
But you do know that chickens, even adults, can't swim, right? Or rather, they swim like a rock.
no not really,mine swim they do
For the first two weeks I used the type of waterer that airheart43 described; a plastic quart reservoir with a screw-on plastic basin. I didn't use marbles, although it's recommended that you do. After that my chicks graduated to the 3 gallon waterer that I still use today and boy! do I love this waterer; filling once a day instead of multiple times. All in all, I'd say two weeks of marbles.
