    My chicks love to play with water and it gets worse as they get older. They are 5 weeks now and it is an awful mess!
    By play, I mean scratch at the waterer between drinks til they have emptied it into their bedding
    it's a mess
    I have to change their water and bedding constantly
    what are you folks doing to reduce the water play??

    I would suggest a nipple waterer! [​IMG] Mine did the same thing, and now that they have their nipple waterer, everything is clean! Folks on here can tell you more about them
