In the Brooder
- Apr 18, 2014
I am new to chickens, just started this spring. I have 16 chickens and have built a coop and run for them and added this watering system, which so far has been working nicely. I also have a hanging drinker in the run. My plan was to have the drinker, which is easier to clean, offer the electrolyte mix and just put plain water in the bucket for the nipples. Would this be ok? They would only have access to water in the coop. Also, what long term considerations should I make to keep the bucket/piping/nipples clean? I have seen the ACV discussions, is that the best plan or should I consider some of the commercial products?
