I have been trying different things learned on this forum. I am aware that one of the members makes a great PVC pipe feeder, too. But here's my solution. I have one of these cheap feeders with the jar attached. And I put it in a cheap dog bowl I bought from Walmart that it fits into exactly. Very similar to this one. The quail have to bend down to get the food, and none of it is scattered or scratched out. None. They are able to reach it okay, too. I have been using this for about 1.5 weeks now and thrilled that I have figured out a solution to the problem.
