I have 2 of the red and white heated chicken waters. I have been wondering if the water would still work if I put a round hole in the top and put a plug in it. I have an awful hard time putting the bottom back on. What do you think

If it will hold a vacuum it will work. If it won't hold a vacuum it won't hold water either.
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.
Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” Mark Twain
You will have a tough time filling them from the top then too because it will run out the bottom as fast as you pour it into the top. The vaccuam created by the sealed top is essential to keeping the water in.
To show this, take a disposable cup and fill it with water, put an inverted bowl over the cup and flip the whole thing over. Notice that it hold the water in the cup. Now try putting a whole in the bottom of the cup and try to fill the inverted cup from that hole in the bottom.
Also, if you sit it on the ground upside down, after filling, then hold with your feet, its easier to twist the base back on.
