Hay Rack?

What kind of Hay rack/containers does eveyone with Melamine cages use??? I've found a wire one that I can screw to the side of the cage, but i'm conserned because i've heard of chins getting their legs caught in them.
I know there's alot of people that use Melamine cages so i just wondered what you all used!!
Thanks!!!!

I have one melamine cage and I just set it in a pile in there. I try to just put enough in for the night or the morning so it doesn't sit being pooped or pee'd on too long.

Take a look at some that attach to the OUTSIDE of the wire (I put mine on the doors). The chins can pull the hay through the wire but there's no chance of getting a leg caught. Quality Cages sells one like what I'm describing for $4:

It cuts down on the mess and the chin who has the one I bought eats more than the others because it doesn't wind up on the cage floor first.

I use terra cotta flower pots in all my melamine cages. My chins enjoy playing in (and with) the hay.
