    Can chickens drink from water bottles, like ones you would give to rabbits? Or do they need an open source of water?

    They can drink from water bottles. It is a little messy though. I put a water bottle in with 4 week old chicks today and it took them about 6 seconds to figure it out !

    However, the water in the bottle stays much cleaner than a bowl of water on the floor of the pen.

    I know what you mean about the dirty water ! I thought only ducks like to play in their water. Ha Ha !
