    Here's an idea I used for other purposes too. I have a translucent water container but it is still tough to see the level of water that remains. So, I use some of those bright orange bobber/floats for fishing. I just throw a few in there and now I can clearly see the water line. Easy to make sure now that they do not run low on water.

    Doesn't the kiddie pool water get dirt, hay & poo in it? How do you keep it clean?

    I free range all day the kiddy pool is out in the yard so no hay around. As for poop in it, sure and mud . Thats why it gets changed every other day, or everyday depending on how much water the ducks splashed out. ;)

    Nope your in the right place :) I have Chickens, ducks, geese, and turkeys. More chickens than anything and they all share water and feed.
