MOTHER readers send in their best tips.
To make an inexpensive homemade baby chicken waterer, all you need is a jar, a saucer, and a rock. You use a quart jar for a lot of peeps and a pint jar for just a few peeps. Knock a small nick in each side of the rim of the jar with a screwdriver or a knife point and hammer. Just a light tap will usually do it. Then fill the jar halfway with water. Find an old ceramic or china saucer. Place the saucer on the top of the jar with the cup indentation side down. Then just flip the jar over quickly. We always put a rock on top of the jar to keep the peeps from knocking it over. It's a simple, easy task.
