I think you are supposed to prop it open for a few weeks till they get used to it.

You're welcome! There is a Youtube video of the Grandpa's feeder. It might answer any questions you may have.

I got the feeder about 10 days ago, spent yesterday every hour on the hour going to it, putting my finger on it for it to ooen, the girls just kept jumping onto the table and looked me in the eyes and said go on then, do your magic. Today did it once, went out came home to find my clever clever girls heads down bums up eating out of the feeder. So proud.

Ive seen only tthethree of the girls using it,, they are the three that are laying. The other two, I'm worried they are not getting enough food, I'd hate to starve them.

I have rescued 3 battery hens. Two have settled with my original 4.The last one is molting and was being picked on so we have separated her from them. She lives on our deck and comes in side and is quite relaxed around us following me around like a puppy, my question is, she's making a quite loud growling sounds. Is this normal?
