I made this feeder awhile back, and it worked fine up until yesterday. I went in the coop to clean up and check water and feed, and I noticed feed all over the floor in front of the bucket,
Has anyone else been having the same problem? Geese it worked great up til yesterday.
I went out to the coop this afternoon and was watching them throw the feed out again.
any Ideas what I can do to stop the waste ?
Did you change your feed up at all? Or add anything to it? I had my bucket filled with pellet feed, then dumped a bit of sunflower seeds in the bucket. When the seeds made their way to the bottom and they found it, they dug at the feed with their beaks and scattered it all over the place going after the sunflower seeds. As long as its all boring pellet feed I dont have that problem, as theres nothing exciting in there for them to dig for. If you didnt add anything, it could have even been roaches or bugs or something in it that they were going after.
