That makes a lot of sense! Sounds like they have no problem getting it then? So the inch just allows it to flow?
Ahh okay, that's a good point! The next chicks I'll make a smaller one then and not let them get the big thing.
I thought of the 2 ports but then I unfortunately bought the 4 inch one like @MeepBeep
and now you said. When I bought them I didn't realize only one would fit in a bucket so bought 4, 2 for each bucket. Maybe I'll make a tote though or just have one bucket. In the big run I may have 2 buckets but I don't want to waste food or have it go bad or anything. They don't go through it that fast. I usually buy it in the 50 pound bags. Although I did recently get a food storage container, one for dog food and one for chicken food, that's been working great so I could always use one bucket and put the extra 25 pounds in there. Or switch containers and use the small one for the chicken food. I'll have to see.
And thank you!!! We almost have a full carton now! Well, actually we would already have 14 eggs but my dad ate 2 lol
So far only 3 are laying! It was just 2 the first 2 days then a third started laying so for the past 3 days (not including today) it's been 3 eggs. So far today I have only gotten 2 but I am hoping the third one lays today!!!! I really hope the other 5 step up their game soon!!! LOL but the eggs today were the most gorgeous ones yet! Perfect light brown color and perfect shell and a perfect green one also with a perfect shell. Today she had little white specks on it. The third layer is a darker brown. It's so exciting finding the eggs! Edited by KDOGG331 - 3/24/16 at 10:19am
