LOL, the teenagers will spread it every which way - it won't hurt them. They will find it if they need it. I have found that my 9mo olds still love to dig through bedding to see if they can find a bit of crumbles that may have been spilled, I think it's the thrill of the hunt and that scratching instinct they have.
A tuna can mounted to a post is a great idea.
BTW I think wading and pooping in any and everything is REQUIRED if you are a chicken - if not you will be banished for life
