    Congrats on your new chicks. I wish you the best of luck with them. Get used to changing the water often *ugh* After a week or so, consider raising it up on a platform, we used 3 half-inch squares of plywood we had laying around. It'll stay a little cleaner that way. If you're like me, you'll be thrilled when the chicks graduate to a larger waterer with higher sides on the basin. Now I only have to clean once, sometimes twice a day.

    They're beautiful. I have two pieces of wood, in a step fashion, with the waterer on the highest level. They love hopping up and down and the water stays clean, something to consider in a couple of days/week when yours are bigger
