    Thats exactly how I did mine in my breeder cages for the quail, its so much easier because I just dump the food in without having to mess with bowls or tray feeders

    i may cut the smaller one, and put a 2" to 3" adapter so it holes that much more feed, want it to be 3qt as well.

    A feed waster will tap that thing dry. An endless supply of feed only encourages bad behavior. I recommend you use flat bottom feeders and find the feed waster/s and put him/her in the freezer where they belong.

    Great idea about increasing the volume of a standard feeder, but a feed waster will suck you dry!
