    Hi,
    Has anyone found a "great" place for waterers and feeders? I've been looking at My Pet Chicken, McMurry and Strombergs. I've also been checking some local places. I have five chicks. What sizes should I be looking for? Also, would I be better off buying the electric heater waterer and using it all seasons (and only plugging in when necessary)? Thanks! Oh, and what cost is "reasonable."

    Hmmmm, why not make your feeder? Do you have a bucket around there, with a lid? They are really easy to make, and very cost effecient.
    this is one I made. Its a 5 gallon bucket....I got it from Burger king...had pickles in it!

    As fpr a waterer...I like the galvonised ones...you can put a heater under them and not worry about melting them.

    Usually the local farm stores will have good selection, as well as fair pricing. Fleet Farm or other farm chain stores would be worth checking out.
