  7. Okay, the Chicken fountain has to be the coolest thing I have seen regarding Chickens so far! (it is right up there with the Poop Coop). Of course I am very easily impressed with everything Chicken right now since we just began our journey. Our chicks will be 3 weeks old on Tuesday. I am sure they would love to have a Chicken Fountain. Not sure who will be more impressed by it, me or them!
