Clean, Fresh Water for Optimal Health

Genelle Kaman



Posted Feb. 11, 2018

Chickens can stop their egg laying if they are without drinkable water. Twelve hours with a dry or dirty container equals more than a week with no eggs.

We use a heated plastic waterer to ensure that we never have to worry about freezing temperatures. Yet, this plastic container can become scummy quite quickly.

Once a week, during one of our regular fill ups, we wipe down and scrub away any and all algae build up. This keeps the water fresh and less pond like.
