My chicks are going through food like crazy (granted they waste a lot) but the water level is hardly moving. There's only 4 chicks, using a quart waterer, but I'm not sure how much is going down them. They seem happy and bright eyed enough. Do baby chicks just not drink much? I read in the Storey's chicken book that about 1 gallon per day per 100 chicks is about right (for 2 week chicks) which makes the amount needed for 4 chicks only 1/25 of a gallon, which is about 5 oz. and I don't think they're getting that much down. More like 1 or 2. I clean it every day and dump debris throughout the day as it accumulates. I'd almost wonder if they're flavor picky (the Storey book said chickens were) except that they don't seem to be showing any poor health signs. Anyway, was just wondering what others' experience with this is.
