I had 9 silkies that are almost a week old. Again my waterer malfunctioned, last time was my bantams. This time on my silkies and one of my silkies was dead this morning. All wet, cold and stepped on. I am so tired of these waterers. I now cut a gallon milk jug and stuck the waterer in their and so hopefully if it leaks again it won't be all over my poor babies. I just want them to all grow up so they are past this brooder stage. Now I just may have to get more silkies.
