I have not hung my feeder and waterer yet. I have bought a larger feeder in metal. I'm still using the red/plastic waterer. I have it on an upside down very shallow feeding dish (fits perfectly). I keep finding it filled with chips and/or tipped with water spilled into the coop. I watch as one of my hens started pulling it off of the feeding dish I have it on. The TSC lady told me that they are attracted to the red (plastic waterer). Now that I think about it they did the same thing to my smaller feeder which was plastic/red. Anyone hear of this? If I get a metal one will they stop pulling it down? I think if I hang it they will want to play with it also.
