I wanted to make a simple automatic chicken farm.
I followed this plan
EXCEPT .... my flow are from outside to central channel is only 5 blocks, not 7.
The water is static in the "chicken" area in the 3 rows furthest from the centeal channel. The 2 rows closest to the central channel do flow to the channel. It's the same on both sides of the central channel.
I've tested it by dropping eggs into the static water and they just sit there.
Is all the water not flowing towards the central channel, because it's less than 7 blocks?
Or is it that I've put the water in wrong? (I've been reading up on water flow but only half get it).
I've tried forcing the flow by adding blocks.
I've tried removing water and replacing it (by bucket).
