    I'm am buying supplies to outfit a small coop for my two chicks, one of which is a crossbeak.

    The crossbeak needs deep dishes to eat and drink from, but I also need them to be wall mounted to save floor space. They don't have to be large as it's only the two birds that will live in this coop.

    Any ideas? Links?

    This has been working very well for us! The tube outside the coop holds feed for ten laying hens, good foragers, for a week.

    Waterers like this should be good. The cups are 2" wide.

    Here is my setup. If you are plan to use cup, keep in mind the water will get freeze during winter. I 'll use aquarium heater in the bucket this winter.

    two chicks

    Most any type of plastic container could be screwed to a wall for just 2 birds​

    I had been planning on just getting a set of dog dishes and mounting them to the wall, but like the idea of the cups. I believe that would help the cross beak.

    Thanks for the posts and the pics. [​IMG]
