    Here is a link to a video of my smart little Dominique chicks learning to use the automatic feeder trigger. This is all from the first 10 minutes it was in the brooder.



    Enjoy,

    Congrats on a nice little feeder system for your babies!
    Cute how they're cleaning it off of each other.
    Good idea with the black mat so they can see it & eat better. [​IMG]

    How did you build that trigger feeder? I have seen tutorials on how to make the bigger ones, but that would be perfect for my brooder this spring! Can ducks learn to use them too?
