Mrs. Beasley and CoCo are outside the minute I open the coop. I put out 200 mealworms and the entire flock scrambled out to scarf them down!
I’m still having trouble with the waterer. It started as soon as I got the thing back in November and I still haven’t figured out how to keep it from overflowing.
It works on a vacuum principle, so that the jug holds a couple of gallons of water that trickle out to keep the pan full.
Except that it just keeps coming out, and I keep coming out to find the pan overflowed and the coop floor wet. So I’ve started just capping the spout. Except that water is still leaking out somewhere. Grr.
