Why not have bowls in the wendy house and have a bottle on the run part where there's mesh? :)

Have you posted any up-to-date pics of your full set-up by the way? Would love to see it!

We have a bowl. Before this we put two U shaped things into the wood for the strappy thing to hook into and made a little holder for the bottle to sit on (it was small oblong piece of ply with a hole in so the bottle spoud could fit through whilst supporting the bottle).

I have seen some proper metal bottle holder that you screw on to the wood, I used to have some when my guineas were in the shed. I'm popping out now but i will def have a look around when i get back :)

I gave my lot a bowl inside and a bottle outside. They never touched the bottle so they now have two bowls

we put two little mesh doors at the front, A. so they cant run out when i go in (they are less than 1ft high so can easily step over) and then u can attach the bottles to them!

Mine have bowls, but they also have a hutch inside the shed- just toplay in,and I could plta bottle on that, if they didn't like bowls either.

so what I could do is make a little mesh panel attach to the ply and do it from there?

You can just staple a bit of mesh to the inside of the wall, like this (usually has the bottle inside it with the spout poking out, but this was taken when it was so cold they had an insulated bowl instead) :)

We drilled some mesh onto two sides but left a gap so you can get the bottle behind :)
