    What do you put it in? My hens keep knocking it over. I need some better ideas than what I am doing.

    I put mine in a rabbit feeder and nailed it to wall.

    I have one of those big foundation bricks with the hole in it that goes all the way though... I filled the hole with oyster shell and it sits outside under a tree.

    I have a really heavy terracotta dog bowl, and that seems to work out quite well. I got it for free as my gran replaced hers with a bowl meant for a Great Dane (she has a pappilion).
