    Hi my question is how much water do 15 eight and seven week old pullets take a day. I have a 3 gallon waterer, today around 1:30 PM I noticed the water was empty I refilled it and at 6 o'clock I noticed that most of the water is now gone not even a gallon is left so my question is how much water do they consume a day

    Thanks

    I have it set up on brick so it's pretty level I'm having trouble getting my husband to hang a chain so that it would hang down along with the feeder

    I'd say pulling a stinker of a mood might spur him into action :)
