    That's the sound of my chicks drinking from a rodent water bottle. I taught them how over the last two days and they seems to like it. It's super noisy but sooo much better then cleaning a bowl of poopy water! lol

    The problem I was having was Mumble must think he/she is a duck because Mumble would get in the water feeder to wash his/her feet off and then poop. LOL The way I showed them was I took Cinnamon who seems to be the leader and put his/her beak to the bottle and gave it a little squeeze so just a drop came out. At that point you could see it clicked in Cinnamon's head. Cinnamon then kept going back for more and the other 2 followed. I also took the water bowl out so the bottle was their only choice. I watched closely to make sure they were all drinking. They are I've already refilled the bottle.



    That would be Nugget our little Diva. LOL
