Finally, I decided to put a boot tray underneath one of the smaller waterers and guess what? It kept the floor dry! So we went on a mission to find one for every coop. For winter we use heated dog bowls in the bigger coops, so we found a metal water heater pan for that one. This works especially well for the dog bowls since it has a cord hole in it anyway.
We put some bedding in, around and under the pan. The splashes get sucked up by the bedding in the pan and can get dumped out without wetting the whole coop. Yeay! The tray gets pretty gross, but the floor stays dry and that means the chickens aren't walking in wet bedding.
We've found different types and sizes of trays to fit all the different drinkers we have. It's really helped keep the bedding dry and it's super easy to just drag them out of the coop and hose them off to keep them clean! Sure wish we would have thought of this sooner!
