    i did see the ad but sorry if I offend anyone but they look like Rubbermaid pitchers with a nipple on the bottom. You need several of them and they say not to use them in the winter.

    Do you think it would be easier for a cross beak chicken to drink from?

    It might because the water drips down into their mouth.
    Make sure to not use your cross beak or its parents if you have them for breeding.
    Its genectic and can be passed on.

    looks easy to make, but I couldn't find the nipples in small numbers. Saw them somewhere but you had to buy ten THOUSAND of them at a time. No thanks.

    Darn I was going to see if I could find the nipples to make one of those waterers. It looks way cleaner that my waterers!!
