This is my waterer for three birds. I refill it twice per day and add a capful of apple cider vinegar. I think its only 1 gallon, a good size for me. My problem is that when I set it on the floor of the coop, the girls fling their bedding into it which wicks water into a very large space. Today I had to remove a big section of bedding because it was soaked and its cool and rainy today, so little chance of it getting fluffed and dried anytime soon. I have tried setting the waterer on top of a small tote or bucket, but the girls like to sit on top of the waterer and knock it off its "stand". Can you recommend another SMALL waterer that won't give me a lot of spillage? Floor space is limited in my 12 square foot coop and when weather is bad the girls don't go in the run often. Thanks in advance.
