The South Burnett Feather Club started using these cups in their show cages a few years ago.
Nearby clubs also adopted the cups.
However supplies at the `Dollar Shops' ran out and the cups became unobtainable.
Greatlander sponsors the club and I have a permanent display in the Poultry Pavilion at Kingaroy Showgrounds.
Greatlander also has a plastic injection machine so naturally I offered to help.
We tried making moulds from the existing cups but these were too flexible to mould from.
So I drew the cup in CAD and I had a hard pattern CNC-produced.

The cups are made from food grade plastic and are dishwasher safe

The design of the handle with its open base, is to make the cups stackable for storage and for transport
However the open handle is perfect for hooking over a cage wire

This is the link to the web page for the cups on our website
