What kind of waterer do you use with Polish chickens? These are the first crested/ bearded chickens chickens I have ever raised, and everyday when I get home from work, one of my polish hens heads is soaked, as are the beards of about half of the faverolles. The waterer I have is the typical red & white, plastic 5 gallon vacuum type from TSC, that I have used for years and have never had a problem. I have it raised on bricks about 6 inches off the ground. Should I raise it or lower it? I thought about the nipple type but I am worried about it freezing. It's the same hens everyday, are they half duck?
