    "Great feeder"
    Pros - Holds plenty of feed for younger chicks, is durable, relatively easy to clean
    Cons - Needs more frequent refilling as chicks get older
    I use this feeder base, along with a 1-quart container, for all of my chicks. I really don't have anything bad to say about it--Its durable, showing no wear and tear after three years, simple to clean, and is easy for chicks to learn how to eat from. For about a dozen chicks that are 3-4 weeks of age, it holds enough feed for several days. In the case of the older chicks, a lot of the feed can get scratched out unless you raise it on a block of wood, but it still holds enough feed for at least a day. I've had no problems with chicks getting cut on any of the metal edges, and they soon learn how to eat from it. Overall, it is a great feeder, and I would recommend it to any chick-raiser.

    I have one too, and I really liked it for the chicks. I think it's good looking, too!
