I find this design fills to the very brim, meaning any slight movement causes water to spill, which is terrible for my carboard box.

Is anyone experiencing this?

UPDATE: I believe the wall that the bottle screw to is leaking air, and that is the cause of this. using 0% infil was probably the cause.

This was just a first run/first print of this design. Backstory: The school that I used to work at only raised chicks that one time and they grew up so quickly I didn't bother with a second try. I was told by some "experienced" people that I shouldn't make it water too wide, they will step in it, or too deep, or they might drown! I think the next file I was going to print had a disk underneath to make it more stable. This was only meant as a quick test, but instead it was used.

I am annoyed at myself for not including the OpenSCAD file. I am sure I have it.... somewhere on a backup.

I'm printing one right now. i'll share the picture!

Thank you, I really aprecciate it

Brilliant! Works really well. Happy chickens! :-)
