How on earth do I stop my 3 goofy birds from spilling almost ALL of their feed each day? They have a small, plastic, 3 pound feeder hung from a hanging-plant bracket. The tray part of it is about level with the top of their backs (they're about 4 months old). Every day they dump the feed. They jump on the feeder, get under it and then stand up, bicker over the food and ram into it (over and over), and their food is all over the ground. Does it matter? Should I just put in on the ground in the first place? Why do they need the feeder since they love pecking around in the dirt so much anyway? Or, can you suggest a way to stop the darn feeder from swinging around so darn much?
