    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! [​IMG] 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! [​IMG] 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.
