    I use the round 9 hole feeders an the chicks waste half of it with their beaks pulling it out of holes. I took cardboard an wrapped around feeders 1 inch above holes an it stopped 99% of waste.[​IMG]

    Hmmmm...might just have to try this. My girls are throwing their feed around like they're trying out for pitching positions in the Major League!!
