Rabbit Food Wasted

I have 15 wire cages with rabbits and each day I put a significant amount of hay in each one. They love it of course and it is vital to them. HOWEVER, so much of it falls through the bottom wire!! I've tried placing it on top of their 'platform', a piece of wood that allows them to get off the wire if they want, and that works some. However, I feel that I am passing good food on to its next use (chicken scavenging, sorting and integration into the garden) far too fast. I'd like the bunnies to EAT the stuff.

I have seen homemade hay racks that hang on the front of the cage, you fill it, they pull it through. I'm thinking that might work and am about to try it.

Any other creative ideas out there? Thanks
