    New to this - wondering how long before I can take the rocks out of the waterer and still not have anyone drown. They are a pain to clean twice a day. And the chicks seem to be growing exponentially. By the way, they're 6 days old. Thanks for any help.

    You can take out the rocks now. As long as they know where to get water and your container's not the kind they can fall into, they'll be fine.
