Hello, I was wondering, is it better to feed my gliders on the floor of their cage in a flat tray type thing or is it fine to use a bird feeder on the side of the cage?

Ever since I changed my gliders cage I have been feeding them in a bird feeder hung to the side of the cage. (The cage came with six feeders, I only use two for the gliders).

Should I go back to feeding them on the floor? Their joey will be exploring the cage and the foods within a week or two as well. Will he be able to eat out of the bird feeder? Thank you :)
 Look what I found on Ebay

I use a glider kitchen on the floor of the cage with a food dish. I'm sure the joey will follow their parents wherever they go to eat and their sense of smell would lead them right to it. I prefer having the kitchen on the floor so whatever the drop or throw out will go into the litter tray under the floor cage. They usually take a piece of their salad out of the tray and eat it on the bottom of the cage. More consistent place for them to discard the fruit/veggies left overs than on the sides of the cage, etc. These are the things I use:

We just buy a LARGE tupperware style container, cut two holes and put it upside down. Keeps them from throwing food all over the place most of the time.

this is SIMILAR to what we use.
