I'm always making feeders and waterers out of something but when someone brought some of those awesome Costco pies for Christmas dinner that disposable container caught my eye. It has that great snap on lip! I filled the coffee can full of sand to keep the girls out of the pan. I have silkie girls and they don't jump on it. You could store your feed in the can. The feed is sitting on sand. That's not spilled feed. It all stays in the feeder!
