I recently read that chickens actually prefer a bowl of water, rather than the "trough" style, like the galvanized waterers etc. Except for when they are baby chicks, of course. I'm thinking of offering them water in a dog dish (heated for winter), rather than the conventional use waterers. And maybe keep a pail for them in the run, or a galvanized water dish. Any comments, experiences or suggestions? Ma I also read that chickens will immerse their whole heads in water given the chance, to clean their eyes, much the same as ducks.
