Default Re: Gravity bin feeder

If you're throwing loads of food away you may just be feeding too much, if you use a bowl to feed it's normal to wait until at least almost all has gone before refilling so you shouldn't be throwing much at all unless she really doesn't like her mix!
I'm a big fan of scatter feeding to keep them occupied & encourage natural behaviour, it seems to make mine less picky if they have fun hunting for food rather than just sitting at a bowl too.
I don't really think a gravity feeder would work for a ham, they are generally way too big & probably even less suitable than a bowl.
