    I finally figured out how to keep the chicks from perching on top of the feeders and waterers. It sure has cut down on the number of times changing the water. [​IMG]

    These are empty 2.5 lb. lard containers on top of the quart jars on the waterers.[​IMG]

    Those are jelly jars under the margarine tubs on the feeders.

    lol, mine would probably jump on the buckets and end up knocking the waterer over. Do yours play with the bird toys you have in there?

    Quote:They love the mirror and bell and the chimes, but they ignore the wooden thingy that the chimes are hanging on. The plastic tubs are big enough in diameter that when they jump up it knocks them off balance. It really works. [​IMG]

    Oops, sorry, I didn't realize that if you remove the picture from the uploads file that it also removes it from the post!
