    Hello hello - first timer here. I'm reading that baby chicks should have cool water, but how are you supposed to keep the water cool in a 90-95 degree brooder? Thanks

    Hi, I'm a first timer too... I have two seperate brooders going and my lights are clamped on ... I put water on opposite side of where light is pointing.... I also change mine several times a day due to the pine shavings that collect in there.... I finally sat the water on a brick, works a lot better....

    Welcome to BYC from West TN ! Just keep the water on the opposite end of the brooder, that temp will be fine for them. You can also look at building a nipple bottle, less messy.

    welcome to BYC the water should be room temp. by keeping on the other end as bird lady said it should stay about right.
