    "Biggest Fan !!! Buy Dozens"
    Pros - Easy to use, easy to see levels, simple to clean, chickens love them, whole seed flows well from them, chickens don't flick food from them as much
    Cons - NOT dishwasher proof. I have melted three of the clear tops :(
    OMG! I LOVE LOVE LOVE these feeder/waterers! I have recommended them to all my buyers and to all that come to me for consultation. They work so well. I literally own at least 14 of these. And I make sure all new chicken owners have two.

    "Great Overall"
    Pros - Holds a lot of water/food, not too hard to clean
    Cons - Isn't the most durable feeder/waterer
    Got for a good price at Walmart, worked very well, but got somewhat dirty easily. Right now the parts are stuck together, so I'm not using it, but is a good quality item overall.

    I went and bought a hanging feeder just now; will use the cute one for water only, or crumbles if I use them in future.

    I love this feeder/fountain in warm weather.....we have 2 of these and all spring, summer and fall I kept water in both, one on each side of their grazing territory. I was able to use ACV in them as they are plastic. I did use them as feeders when my chicks were problems.

    I see, well clever idea on your husbands behalf. As i said i found it alright with a crumble, that is the form of feed here. I prefer hanging feeders though, chickens are too wasteful with other designs, in my experience.

    We tried it for layer pellets, and it didn't feed (pardon pun). My husband is a diemaker, so VERY precise...he took a dremel burr to it, and removed all the plastic he could to enlarge the holes but still leave barely enough thread to grip. It works some better, but not enough to trust. Crumbles worked okay (after modification--I didn't try them before he worked on it.) The girls wasted most of them, though.

    What type of feed? As i said i used ours with a crumble and it worked?

    I agree with the pp, I also have this fount and it only works as a waterer. It does not function as a feeder at all.

    I have tried this feeder/water fountain and unfortunately it did not let any food out and I was forced to overpay for something that didn't work, however if you use it for water, you will be fine.
