Hi guys. Here in Oklahoma the summers are pretty hot (100+) even now its in the low 90s. I need new ideas on watering. I do NOT want to loose anybody due to the heat. I've spent a lot of time and effort into getting the birds i have now (Silkies, Standard blue, splash, and calico Cochins, Turkens, and Seramas). I normally just use bowls (which are a big headache, the birds dump them, get in them, wash there feet in them, scratch there food into them, you name it they do it). Its pretty irritating to take water out 7+ a day due to this. So I need advice on a good watering idea. I would perfer something that holds more than a gallon of water that they can't easily dump or get it dirty. Since I will be gone for a few weeks and my brother will be in charge of watering my birds (he knows nothing) it has to be simple because I don't want him to have to haul water out mre than 2/3 times a day at the most. Thanks guys.
