Right now I just use clay bowl-like things to feed and water my 2 chickens. However, they are very fond of stepping inside the bowl of feed and kicking the food about. Do you have any suggestions for small-scale feeders and waterers?

You could put the waterer/feeder on concrete blocks or bricks so that they are off the ground. That would help avoid some dirtying of the water/feed. There are other ideas for making your own feeder/waterers (such as waterers using chicken nipples) on BYC, but I haven't made my own. Just do a little search and I am sure you will find a lot of DIY ideas.

If you raise your food and water high enough so they can't scratch, it won't get dirty and the food will be either in their tummies or in the feeder.
