Knocking the glug over

Recommended Posts

We got home from a day out today to find the glug upside down in the run! I don't know how long they had been with out water the silly chooks. I wondered how they managed it until OH caught Frankie jumping up and in the glug this evening! I hope she doesn't make a habit of it...

Geraldine and Georgina regularly use their glug as somewhere to walk over, perch on, dip their feet in etc. Often they stand at one end, and drink from the opposite bowl. Although, they seem to much prefer using the glug bowl as a perch, and drink rainwater that has collected in their dustbath! They haven't managed to tip it over..........yet.

I had the same problem now I use that bendy rubber-covered garden wire, looped round the middle of the Glug and then passed round the net of the Eglu run. By fstening it outside the run its easy to loosen it to take the Glug out for a wash. The girls still prefer water thats been spilt on the floor!!!

Following a tip from Gallina, I now rest the Glug on the floor of the run, with the hooky things anchoring it in place . It doesn't tip over...even though Artemis Fowl likes to wash her feet in it.! :roll:

 

Previously it was knocked over a couple of times when it was hooked on, off the ground.. I think it is more natural for them to drink from a lower position...if you watch their neck stretching action.

 

They prefer a mucky puddle anyway!

My chickens love tipping things over! we have two new ones so several feeding stations, I have to go out every ten minutes to pick up and refill the tubs!

 

They have managed several times to tip over the peanut feeders (we don't have grub and glug we have a mark 1 eglu!)

I have been lucky and the glug stays in place, but feeders, don't get me started :evil:

 

Solution, hang a feeder (cheap one from local far, supplies £3.00) from a bungee fron the run roof and all is fine and dandy, but they still manage to poo in it from time to time :!::D:D
