Hello
Recently I acquired and raised a young homer as a companion for my tame female feral. The young homer who is now about a month old has taken to pecking and licking the terracotta seed bowl. There is grit with shell and charcoal in, and I have seen her eating this as well but she continues to lick the bowl. As terracotta is not natural and probably has all sorts of stuff in it I'm assuming its poisonous, but can she pick up the poison by licking?
Is there a way of stopping this?
As I know I could take away the bowl but its the only seed bowl I have which they can't knock over, so is there another option?

Don't see how terra cotta could hurt them, but if in doubt, I wouldn't use it as a dish.

May be you can spread silver foil or butter paper or some thick paper in it and then serve? If you have just one seed dish suitable for them.
