Anybody know if chicks, and even adult chickens, will drink from a water bottle? You know, the type used for rabbits and other critters? I know when I had parakeets, I used one and they'd drink from it, but what about chickens? I'm so sick of cleaning shavings out of the chick waterer, it would take up much less floor space in the brooder box, and the water would certainly remain cleaner. Plus, it would be nice to hang up for a broody hen, so she wouldn't have to leave the nest so often or for birds that needs to be separated for whatever reason... Thoughts?
