I am still struggling with them keeping the water clean. I have all the rest figured out. They either poop in the water, or when I put the water bottles in they think it's fun to peck at them and drain them all in 15 minutes. When I elevated the water containers on small bricks so they would not poop in it, they knocked them over instead. Any suggestions?
I watched my firstborn graduate to being a teenager. As of 6:08 AM. That is enough for one day!​

Also learned that adding 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar to their water helps to neutralize the poop smell. And guess what? It actually works? With the cold spell I have them in the garage and the smell has reduced greatly since adding the vinegar. Who would have known? And they...
I need to catch up with this thread. So please it's still going! :-)   Guess what? My baby that was still a newborn when I joined-- she is 13 today! I can hardly believe it!
