    here is a four foot length of 6" square vinyl post for fences. I gouged a big hunk out of the bottom, set it in a plastic pan from goodwill, and tied a loop of string to the fence and hooked it over the top of the feeder. If the food hangs up at all, just lift the vinyl post a couple inches and instant feeder fill! I want to do that in all my pens!

    we did that with the pvc pipe and it doesn't stick or hold up the food flow.. where you have it straight into the dish we put in a 45 degree angle and it flows freely.. we use it for calcium.. another for grit and one for food
