Ground bird feeder (1 Viewer)

Can someone recommend some good ground bird feeder? I recently bought one made from ploy wood which is a plastic material but noticed a lot of peeling and splinters of this material all over the feeder including the tray which is dangerous for birds to eat from since they can end up eating that material. I don't even know why they are using this material to make ground bird feeders. Just right after I bought it I told the seller to make there are no scratches, no peeling, no damaged or defective parts. I spent 40 minutes using a tweezer just to try to remove the peeling from the tray and a lot left including all over the bird feeder so why are they even selling this product if they know it's not safe in the first place? Is it safe?

How about 'the ground' ?

I bought a 'ground feeder' once -- waste of time -- kept the food off the ground but it still got wet, eaten by rats and then fell apart ...... The farmland projects near by just put a load on the ground and birds seem super happy.....

I already leave the food on a tray under a porch but have to keep it on a certain spot and it wont get wet. It will only get wet if its heavy rain. But then I have to sweep all of the bird seeds and the wind will blow it then I have to spray water on cement after sweeping to get rid of all the seeds. At least with a bird ground feeder it will keep less seeds from going on the ground. Now I am looking at a ground platform feeder. It doesn't have a roof and it's actually a little bigger than the tray I have and the depth is higher. I just need ro make sure the material isn't going to be peeled.
