    I thought I share that I use my auto game feeder on a timer that goes off an hour or so before their bedtime that is filled with some scratch feed. Fun to watch when the timer goes off. No matter were they are on property its like noisy chicken free for all:) anyone else try this?
     

  2. Smart! Very smart. I like the idea.

    What do you during hunting season though? ;)

    Wish ya the best.

    I have 2 1/2 two of that is fenced in. My chickens ,ducks and turkey all free range within that. I have also been thinking of using a auto game feeder to feed. Out side of your post I don't see much info on the idea. Do use it to for your main feeding process. That is were I'm leaning toward. Any info would be great!
