Chicken feeders and drinkers come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. Drinkers
can come in sizes from one to four gallons for example, and the choice of sizes would
be dependent upon how many chickens you are looking at keeping.
A large drinkers however does not mean that your chickens will require less management
or reduced duties. Feeders and drinkers should be changed on a daily basis (twice
daily or more often) such that your chickens always have a fresh supply of food and
drink. Chickens need plenty of water, with larger chickens needing more water. Filling
the drinkers with a minimum of half a pint per bird and allowing extra for evaporation
in sunny weather should be sufficient.
