I think I'm so clever. Trying to do the best with this and be more efficient at that. But then 6 feathered friends come along and within 24 hours make me look like the total fool and novice I am by emptying their feeder. I wasn't even gone that long. But within 4 hours my babies (2 days old) half way empty their feed out of the feeder onto the pine shavings on the floor of the brooder. I took it out until I could get some answers. LOL What the heck?!! I mean, I don't want to NOT feed them, or have clean fresh feed available. But WHAT THE HECK?!! I'd love any advice.
