I was wondering if any of you could share your methods of keeping your chickens water clean when they are confined. When they are cruising the land in their tractors there is very little problem with this but once there is hay or shavings around I can't keep their water clean for more than a few minutes. Before I know it they have kicked another heap of poopy hay and dirt into the waterer again!! I was thinking of building a 'table' of sorts with a hardware cloth top supported by some wood pieces to get it about a foot above the loose bedding... I was wondering if any of you would mind sharing how you do this... I was also wondering if any of you have a suspended waterer... I would like to put something like this in the chicken tractors as the challenge there is keeping the waterer level on the slopes... SO fill me in on all your brain storm ideas folks! I know that there have got to be some great ideas out there! Thanks.
