    i'm trying to find a glass container that's high enough to put water in for lockdown. but i worry that the chicks will jump in and drown. is 2 - 2 1/2 inches tall enough?

    I would recommend soaked rags or soaked thick socks instead of a jar of water. Chicks can do things most people would never think of.

    I use sponges in plastic lids for lockdown.
