Does anyone know a good way to present minerals to young birds (Pink and Black) or Pick-pot?

I use old Pick-pot pots or the plastic type of galley pots with lips that turn back on themselves a bit.

However, I find the young birds tip them over and spill all the contents of the floor.

I have tried building 'Hoppers' that hold 3 or 4 pots, but they are never very successful.

Does anyone have any good ideas please.

Cheers

Phil

I put one of the brown glazed pots into each feeding tray with the wire tops........cant fall over and works well enough.


I don't have a picture of the type of feeder, but Darren uses the same ones, so I hope Darren doesn't mind me using the photo with Alfie on.

Put a wire tomatoe growing trellis over it. Or a bleach bottle with large holes in the sides.

I like the picture of Darren's loft manager the best.
