    Just make sure the water isn't deep enough that they can drown (drowned? be drowned?).

    My waterers have done that twice. First time was on Easter when we were gone all day. Was in my bantam brooder of 12 chicks. Came home and they were soaked. I quickly changed all the bedding and dried everyone off. I was so worried I would lose them but everyone was fine.
    Then this past sunday went out to check all the chicks and in my brooder of 9 silkies it was all over again. This time 1 silkie did die. Not sure what had happened, if it was the water or if he/she got trampled on or combination of both.
    I am sure your chicks will be fine. I have learned, don't worry til it is time to worry.
