clever repurposed use for old chick feeders!! (pics)

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 

I saw this in a magazine the other day.  It was SOOO clever that I thought I just had to share it with my backyard chicken friends!!  Use your old chick feeders as cute and kitchy candy dishes!!  How cool is that?  I am not really sure where to share this idea on the message board......but I kind of thought feeding and watering your flock seemed appropriate?  Now I am using it to feed my kids and husband!  smile  I wrote about it a little on my blog ....check it out here.......

Anyway, I thought I would share it with you guys.....I am sure you have some of these laying around too!  How cute ....  I think it would even make a cute gift....filled with a persons favorite candy.  Humm...

Looks pretty neat but it would slow me down way too much on those m & m's. They dont last long enough to put in anything but my mouth at my house. Thanks for sharing.

haha - it wasn't a brand new feeder actually.  But I did run it through the dishwasher on sanitize three times!  smile  Sparkly clean.

Great idea!  I bought one of those whenmy girls were chicks and now use the bigger one; the older one has been sitting around for a few weeks, now I know what I can do with it.*



*I wash my feeders and waterers in the dishwasher every few days on the sanitize cycle, too.
