As soon as I started to wash the base, I cut my finger down to the bone. Little presure was needed. I used it for a few days, then bought a plastic one. If I just got a fluke one, please tell me. I will be happy to use steel in the future.
Pros: good size, chicks love it, and easy to clean
Cons: Can be hard to open
It is perfect for the persn not brooding tons of chicks and an easy clean. The chicks love to hop on it too. You can fit a good amount of feed in and it doesn't take up that much space. The only down side is it can be hard to open.
