Keep Your Hens Hydrated

With Spring Chick Days in full swing, it’s important to prepare for when your chicks outgrow their current waterers! The weather will continue to get warmer and your flock’s need for constant access to clean, fresh water will be more important than ever. Little Giant® has a variety of waterers that will guarantee to keep your hens hydrated!

How much water do your hens need?
