    A friend gave us some old feeders/waterers. Would a good wash in mild, hot soapy water, a rinse with bleach water and a final clean water rinse be sufficient for us to reuse them when our chicks are grown up enough to use this size? Chicks coming April 8th! These were used for ducks, back in the day. Thanks. [​IMG]

    A good physical cleaning with soap water plus a 10 % bleach treatment, and they should be fine to use.
