Home Forums Champions’ chat Feeding station Reply To: Feeding station


Hi everybody.

This was the only entry I could see for feeding station, so I hope my potentially ‘daft’ question will get an answer or two.

My (well supported) feeding station consists of a transparent plastic storage box with just one entry hole (5″ square) and a brick on top to discourage other animals from trying to tip it over or move it to get at the food.

I’ve noticed that recently the ceramic bowl I use for the food has moved around a lot as if the hogs are trying to reach morsels at the far end of it. I did, at first, have this bowl and the water bowl side by side at the far wall, but the food at the far end of the bowl wasn’t getting touched, so I put the water bowl in a corner on the wall nearest the entrance and the food bowl in the middle.

I wonder if the half-inch lip on the bowl is a bit too much? Would it be better to just scatter the food on the ground? Also, I imagine the bowls would be quite heavy for a hog to move, but nevertheless they do!
