    I think it will work for 90 percent of the feed, when it's 10 percent full they might have a tough time getting more out. I like it, nice idea.

    I think you will have flow problems and will want to make bigger openings, as well as alot of wasted feed unless you elevate the feeder a little. Even then, they will climb into the tray and scatter the feed, as they are spry little boogers! [​IMG]
