I have a hanging plastic feeder in the coop that my chickens refuse to eat out of. I have some little dishes out in the run that hang on the side of the fence that are really small, and I fill them daily in case they want to eat while they are outside. Well, when the feed runs out of the outside dishes, they just go without until I fill them back up...they won't eat out of the hanging feeder inside that's full of feed. It got so bad that I finally built them a ground feeder out of 10x2's shaped in a V to put outside under the covered part of the run so I don't have to fill dishes twice a day. I'm thinking about just taking the hanging feeder out. Anyone else have this issue? I don't know if the hanging feeder freaks them out or what. Maybe they just don't like going inside to eat?
