This batch of birds has been a lot less work to raise than last year's batch. Keeping the chicken tractor stationary is a lot easier than moving it each day.

two weeks ago. I'm going to need more real soon. It took them one week to finish the first 50 lb. bag and they're getting close to the bottom of the second bag.
5-gallon bucket feeding poultry nipples in the tractor along with another poultry nipple waterer on the coop. In addition to those I keep a 1-quart waterer in the tractor and a 1-gallon waterer next to it. Believe it or not, I have to fill the 5-gallon bucket and the two stand alone waterers every day (the waterer on the coop is attached to a 60-gallon rain barrel so I don't bother with it). I don't know if they're drinking that much water or spilling it, or if it's evaporating, but it's going somewhere.
