Purpose of food bowl part

I can not figure out what the piece on the left does.

It does fit in the food bowl.

Thanks.

Re: Purpose of food bowl part

The food bowls that came with my cage also have a top attachment, and my bowls are white. I have no idea what that top part is for and just leave them off.

Re: Purpose of food bowl part

I think it is to prevent birds from pooping into the food (especially in a multi-bird/aviary setting)

Yes that's how they go together as far as I can tell. I don't know the purpose of it, unless the company thought the bird would feel more secure maybe?

Like I said, I think the IDEA is to prevent poop from falling in, but in my mind, it just creates a nasty little nest, so I would leave it open

I let my bird goes outside the cage.

He was pooping thru the cage into his water bowl.

So I put a piece of cardboard over the bowl on the top of the cage.

Re: Purpose of food bowl part

The other possible reason is to keep the contents in the feed dish rather than flung about the place?

You may be right that it's there to keep poop from falling in. Whatever, like I said I just leave it off!
