How to Build a Poultry Water Stand

How to Build a Poultry Water Stand
By William Morrow, Whitmore Farms Everyone that has chickens knows what a challenge it can be to keep their water source clean. The birds love to scratch and kick up litter into the water and can create quite a mess. Before you know it, your water trough is a slurry of wood shavings, manure, and feathers. Clean, fresh water is vital to the health of your chickens. Dirty, soiled water can cause illness in your birds and is less palatable to your chickens. Reduced water intake will lower egg production in your layers and slow down growth in your broilers. This is especially important for young chicks and poults with developing immune systems. Coccidia is your number one concern when growing out young chicks, and prevention through good hygiene is your best strategy for happy, healthy birds.
