Chick Stand to Keep Bedding Out of Water/Food


For those of you getting chicks this spring, the chick stand could be a handy solution to the messy problem of chicks dragging poop and bedding into their food and water.

As suggested by Deborah Niemann, author of Homegrown and Handmade, as the birds get larger, people often hang the feeder/waterer or put it on blocks, but the same simple idea could be applied to prevent the birds from soiling their food and water.

Blogger Joshua Jay Elliot logged the growth of his chicks over the course of two months. There’s a lot of fun commentary and great photography. Check out his blog here.

This is a very informative and artsy photographic  documentation of chick to pullet! Enjoy!
