    Thought up this one during the night so I gave it a try
    cut oval shaped hole in can with (gulp) poultry shears, smoothed edge with dremel, screwed it to scrap 2X4, sideways so they could use it as step up, they are banties. and filled with chick grit.
    put it in and one had to try before I even got the door closed.
    I can snap the end open to clean it.
