8 day Old Chick-lets

The chicks got a Bell Waterer today. It is gravity fed from a five
gallon bucket. Simple really. As the chicks drink the water in the rim
of the bell, it becomes lighter. As it lightens, the bell rises off a
weighted base and allows water to flow out into the bell and as it
gets heavy it shuts off the flow. Ingenious!
