    Hey all, saw a youtube video of a bucket feeder with a toggle/bolt hanging from the bottom. The chicken taps the bottom of the bolt and feed spills out from a hole in the bottom of the bucket. Has anyone else used one of these? If so, any improvements you've made? any trouble getting your chickens to switch to this type of feeder? thanks !
