    So i went to church today and left the girls for a couple hours. When i got back i went in and they were all chirping like crazy. I knew something wasn't right. I looked at their water and it was completely empty and the bottom of the brooder was covered in water. Somehow it emptied and the little water trough was full of shavings. The girls were so thristy. I put fresh water in and they all gathered around it.

    The water container was not tipped over so i have no idea how that happened in such a short time.

    I didn't want them to drink too much too fast so i took it back out and then gave them some more after a few minutes had passed.

    Will they be ok? It really scared me!!!!
