Ducklings can't figure out drinker

Hi there,
I made a waterer for my ducklings out of a gallon hawaiian punch jug. I cut a rectangle into it height ways and then turned it sideways and filled it halfway. The ducklings know there's water in there, and peck around it, but can't seem to quite figure it out. They have a pan for water as well, but it's obviously very messy, so I'm hoping to switch them over to this one.
Any help is appreciated

I got creative with my babies and it took them a bit to figure it out as well. They will figure it out when they get thirsty enough, just have to be patient. Just make sure that they have enough head room when they do start using it.
