I have a 10 day old chick that tried to jump on the lift ring on a conical starter feeder and fell inside and got stuck. Luckily somebody was watching to see what happened. We went to the rescue and took the thing apart. I switched to the multi-hole oval shaped feeder so they can't do this again. I didn't see any previous posts to this so wanted to give a heads up. This starter feeder might be good for a few days, but need to be switched out after about a week.
