    Just give them the same water you would drink, they'll be fine. You could chop up some leafy greens and put them in there to help encourage them to drink. Good luck!

    Tap water should be fine. The only thing I add to my ducklings water is some pro-biotics. Just my opinion but I think its a great way to start them.

    Thanks to all. Tap water it is. The only reason I asked was I have to keep distilled water around for a medical condition anyway. [​IMG]

    We keep distilled water in the house for my boyfriend's CPAP machine.

    We also run our tap water (which has a lot of chlorine and arsnic, yet is still drinkable) through a Brita Pitcher before giving it to the flock. This means a LOT of filtering before we can fill their waterers. [​IMG]
