In the Brooder
- Jun 2, 2017
Our property has two wells. The old dug well and our drilled well that we use for our house. Our drilled well produces very hard water and is on a softener (very salty). We drink from a reverse osmosis system and that's what I have been giving my chickens so far but it takes a very very long time to fill their waterer. The old dug well has nice soft water but its kinda dirty and could contain bacteria since we no longer have it on a UV system. This might be a silly question but would it be okay to give the untreated dug well water to the chickens?
