Hello all, I'm new to chicken farming and still trying to figure out this watering thing. Do chickens need anything special? I've been using a 3 gallon bucket and filling it to within a few inches of the top. They seem to look over the edge and get a drink when they need it. They have access to it in their coop 24/7 and I replace/refill the water ever day or so. They are free ranging without a fence from sun up to sun down if that makes a difference. They also have access to a 0"- 6" (shallow) creek, but they haven't ventured down the ravine to it yet. By the way, we got our first egg yesterday. It was small, but green!
