  1. LOL, nice! You could almost make that work if your kitchen has an exterior wall and you ran the hose through a small hole and installed the feeder outside. Or a shed. Yeah, better test that on the shed kitchen first. :)

  2. I know that this was made as an art piece. But the realist in me must state that the lightweight crumbs would mostly stop at the bottom of the pipe, and not have enough momentum to reach the dish. And the more crumbs that don’t make it to the dish, the easier it will clog up. Having had an African Gray once, the bird would go for the entire loaf, not the crumbs.
    I’m not negative, it’s an approach that keeps you off the “What was I thinking” column. he,he,he

    1. Oh yeah, absolutely not. I’m not sure I’d even call it “art.” Gareth was able to produce the word I was looking for above: “Chindōgu,” which refers to the predominantly Japanese practice of making ridiculous inventions that are intended to amuse, rather than to actually be practical.
