i made this feeder for my 4 orphan piglets
so that i wouldn't have to hold the bottle
it can feed 4 pigs at once
i bought a pie pan at goodwill and super glued the nipples in then spread hot glue over top
I also hot glued over the little hole on top of the plastic part

    everybody i talk to says that it wouldn't work but they drink it right down and i never had any problem with the glue softening. the only problem is that the pie pan is too small so it is hard to refill while they all have their heads in it.
    I just thought that it might help someone who has piglets.
    it cuts feeding time from 45 min to 10 minutes start to finish.

    i can post a video of them using it if you would like
