    So I recently got chicks and ducklings. Well their water was always very nasty no matter how often I changed it. So I took advice from some other members here and decided to try to put the waters on top of paver stones.

    So I ask my husband to grab one out of the barn and put it in the cage to help keep the water clean. I told him if he could find a smaller piece that would be fine and that we probably only needed about half of one.

    Well I came home from work that day to find this in the brooder.....


    He then proceeds to tell me that he had no idea why I would think a rock would discourage the chicks from making their water nasty.

    Oh husbands :p

    "Communication" is of the essence.

    LOL That is a Do It Yourself kit ... Have to crush it down and glue it back together as a paver !

    Thanks for the laugh. Communication is essential. We think we are being clear, but something gets lost on the way. :lau

    I really wonder what my husband was really thinking when I originally told him. Based on the clear misunderstanding we had I am going to have to assume he thought I was off my rocker when I told him!
