...Seem to prefer to drink out of nasty rain puddles rather than their nice, clean waterers???

* Total weirdness, Stevie-- You just described a Christmas when my kids were little to a "T". They got a lotta toys-- My mom got a weed-whacker for her roses--- and the kids played with that triangular sorta box ALL day!!!! HOW'D YOU DO THAT?????
p.s.: Are you saying I should get the chicken a cardboard box?

The same reason that dogs prefer to drink out of toilets.

Some basic need for trace minerals that has escaped human understanding for eons.​

you might as well pack up the waterer and star digging little holes and filling it with water lol.

They freaked out when they went from a cardboard brooder to a big cage. I had to add on to the cardboard brooder lol. Maybe if you put some cardboard boxes outside I bet the chickens would be going in them all day​

* I'm trying one more time-- got a nice new plastic box-- and I'm gonna fill it with the dry ficus leaves she likes. . . . We'll see if that works at all. . . . Silly Goomba Chicken!!!
