    4/5,
    "Pretty Good"
    Pros - Holds plenty of feed for a decent sized flock. Hanging hook makes for easy hanging on a higher hook to avoid night time rodents.
    Cons - Meh, it wasn't free and won't sit on the ground without unscrewing the base.
    I only had issues with the bottom coming off BEFORE I hung it. Once hung... never again. Adjustable tightness for different feed types.

    "Ok feeder, but not alot of thought put into..."
    Pros - Hangs, holds a nice amount of feed.
    Cons - It is always coming apart, and the feed gets stuck in it.
    I bought one of these second hand, and overall, it is an ok feeder, but the feed always gets stuck, even with dry, semi fine food, and you constantly have to make sure it is not about to fall apart.

    "Had a couple issues"
    Pros - It hangs and it is big enough so u dont have to fill it up as often
    Cons - The bottom screw needs to always be tighten
    I have had 2 of these feeders for about a month. When I got them the bottoms completely fell and i was worried it would always Fall off. But it really hasn't fell but we makesure the screw is always tight. Not the best feeder their is but its doing the job.:)
    Overall:

    Sorry, but I love mine... I have it hanging and it seems to work good for my chickens.

    Does not weather well. After time the plastic becomes brittle.

    I have 2 of them and they seem to work pretty well.

    For me, my chickens spill a ton of feed. Maybe it is just my chickens, but it was not amazing for me. Durable though.

    Yes,it does keep out rats. But i still dont like it.

    I have had one for two years. No issues

    Do hanging feeders deter rats? We have put out poison carefully away from my birds, but the food pans are counterproductive.
    1. BYCforlife
      It would, if it is high up enough that the rats can not get to it.

    I have been using one of these (I actually use 3 of them) for about 10 months now with no problems. I don't hang them, I just put them on a flat brick.
