My 1 1/2 month old 5 urban Leghorn chics scratch with wild abandon. I use pine shavings in their coop, so the shavings get everywhere- on the ckicks, on wall, on top of the light!, in the water, the food etc. Sometimes I can't even find their feeder because it is buried in the shavings! These little ladies have some high kickers. Does anyone have any suggestions about feeders and waterers that prevent things flying into the water or feed? The best I can do so far is to take one gallon plastic jars with lids and cut squares in them about 3-4 inches off the ground. Then I put the jars up on an overturned tray that is about 3 inches deep. This helps tons, but the chicks can't get their heads in there real deep so I have to be sure to keep the water level up. Any ideas?? thanks!
