Hello! What are some of the best chicken feeders that don't waste food. I have a trough feeder. Does that work? It seems like with my automatic chicken feeders that are just a bucket on a pan/dish, they just scratch the food out. Could I add something to that so they don't scratch the food out?
I have this chicken named Lucky who can't really walk. It is about 5 months old. I thought it had been eaten by a raccoon but I found it later in an upside down bucket. Long story. It was there for seven days and is alive eating and drinking and pooping well. It can stand up on its feet now and...
They are amazing animals. I leave mine outside and feed them a mix of corn, wheat, sunflower seeds, milo, and oats. They are beutiful ducks and are super quiet and alert. Cold hardy and can fly fairly well. I'm giving this review because they are amazing!
When ever a cockeral pecks me or his fellow chick mates, I lightly kick him. For me it turns out that this helps for me. If all of them are pecking one, you need a bigger brooder or more secret hiding spots. You should always expect mild bullying though from some chicks. Some just don't learn.
I have a non-insulated coop in 10 degree weather but there are about 30 chickens in there. Do I need a heat lamp for cold chickens just in case. I also have a molting chicken. Does she need a heat lamp in the coop just in case the weather gets really cold?
