    Take a mason jar, glass or cup that is sturdy. If you have one with a chip in the rim even better. Fill it with water then if its not chipped put some toothpicks on the top then put shallow bowl(upside down) or to large lid on top. Then flip the whole setup over... Do this in the sink to you get the hang of it. The lid or bowl will fill but most of the water will stay in the container till needed.

    In a pinch, you can use any shallow small dish with pebbles/small rocks in it to keep the chicks from drowning.
