Our first chicks are 4 weeks old and out in coop with heat lamps. It is a constant battle to keep water clean of pine shavings. I just bought a 5 gallon waterer and stopped using the chick waterers in hopes it would help reduce changing water/cleaning pine shavings out. It was littered with shavings in the water this morning. Is there anything bad that will happen if they drink water regularly that has had shavings sitting in it? I guess hanging the waterer is an option..though they r still lil yet. Messy lil buggers.
