    I have 4 6wk old babies. Ive been using the small round feeder with mason jar but they have started knocking it over & wasting the food. I think they may b doing it when they jump on top of it cause they are getting heavier. I was wondering anyone had some other ideas as to a feeder. I didnt want to use a big round one tht they can get in & poop in. Thanks for your ideas.

    Hang it from something so they can't knock it over!

    I agree.

    Or, what's the weather like by y'all? Of its warm enough you can just put them in the coop and have them with a big feeder.

    Thank you. I may try to hang it or have thought of nailing a different one on side of pen. The daytime temps have been in 60-70s and night have been around 40-50s. Not bad for winter.
