I can't get the bottom off of my chicks' waterer. I've even used a rubber gripper to try to twist the two pieces apart. They're STUCK. My chicks need water and I have a spare feeder. I'd like to just use that until my husband gets home from work. Is there any safety issues with using an 8-hold feeder as a waterer? The chicks are 10 days old. I should add that this is a mason jar style of feeder.
