    i know it can be done . thinking of making a pvc feeder and mixing layer and bird feed together......but i think the bird feed will find it's way to the bottom faster then the layer feed can fall. or just throw it in the pen. got a tin feeder and the straw and stuff gets in the feeder and clogs it up. never ends

    Your probably right that the bird seed will likely go through faster than the feed. We have a dish pan from the dollar tree that we sometimes put our chickens treats in or in the winter we give our birds oat and wheat, black oil sun flower seeds in the dish pan. Some people hang a goat feeder on the wire so they cannot dig it out on the ground but get the extra seeds.
