    I've got a waterer that keeps getting filled with dirt from my chickens running around the coop, and I have to goo and clean it out three or four times a day, and if I'm gone for the day, they don't get watered till I'm home, because there waterer is packed with dirt. Any suggestions?

    Put it on a bucket or a low pan or something like that. Should work fine.

    The lip of the water should be about as high as their backs. Once it's high enough, they can't kick as much stuff into it.
