Jumbo Fountain Feeder 6", holds 8 oz
Very helpful and long lasting.
The picture shows the feeder perched through the bars. With my experience, I have to either, sit the feeder inside the cage on top a strong perch or on the bottom of the cage. The one they sell if only for food. I can't use it for water or the birds will think it is bath water. They do not carry the kind that has a small spout for drinking. The one they carry is great for when you need plenty of food to last your bird(s) without worrying.

Easy to Use
This is a great way to minimize the seed/pellet lost during eating. My tiels love to perch on the end and have a ball. Its easy to use and fill & is very affordable.

Silo feeders are so much better than cups. Less wasted food hidden under hulls and not big enought for a bird to get in and kick out the seed. When you have nearly 50 birds...that's a biggie! With silo feeders...there is no question when it is time to re-fill them.
I just got mine and set them out in the breeding cages. I filled one with seed and looks like they will work fine, but it's not breeding time yet (my birds are still out in the aviary) so I have not put them to the test.
I could not get them to hook on to the bars in any of the 3 different styles of cages I have, so I set them on the cage floor. I am fine with that, because eating, is about the only thing my birds do at the bottom of the cage. I don't take up precious space in the upper area of the cage for feeders.
I found the ring at the upper part of the unit to be useless on my cages..... but fit perfectly over the top of the cuttlebones to keep them from falling out of the cuttlebone holders!
