    Every morning, I give my girls chopped greens, leftovers (both solid and liquids), sprouts, etc. I am opposed to throwing this on the floor of their run. I used pumpkins when I got them for free but those are long gone. I then tried a ceramic food bowl from our deceased [​IMG] Bullmastiff (165 pounds - BIG bowl). The chickens left everything which I assume is because they didn't like pecking the hard surface.

    What do you use successfully? I also want something that doesn't tip over easily and can be cleaned.

    Sorry about you dog..[​IMG] I just use ceramic cereal bowls and the chickens are fine with it. Maybe yours just need to get used to it.

    I use the disposable foil pie pans/turkey roasting pans and, if the chickens don't smash them into oblivion, I wash them out and reuse them.
    Also, those plastic type containers that ready made frozen lasagna comes in work great, too.
    I'm sorry about the loss of your dog. [​IMG]

    We use a galvanized 2 x 12 inch pan that we found in the pet section of Walmart for $2.99.

    my treat dish is a big plastic saucer (the kind that collects water under a potted plant). I bought it at Lowes for $2.00 it was on clearance. The chickens have no issues eating from it.
