    Tap water is just fine! Be sure and use the chick waterer or put marbles in the larger one where they can't fall in and drown. What kind of chicks do you have?

    tap, considering they pick on their own poop step in it, eat worms, poop in the water and then drink it and eat earthworms/night crawlers.
