What I don't like:  it sits on the ground instead of hanging, it's going to be a pain to clean, it doesn't hold enough water.

 

Does anyone use one of these for their ducks?  I was looking at them but I can't tell if the water would be deep enough for them to rinse their nostrils:

 

Are you going to have this inside? it's going to be messy but looks like it would be deep enough for tiny Calls to use.  I make steps for my Muscovy's to use the 2gal buckets I sit out for them and the 5 gal I have for my geese just pieces of 4x4's or other sizes we have left over from other projects.
