    I got this tube feeder "kit" from a local feed store. It's called "Weak Kid" for baby lambs and goats originally. I just wanted to share this as it makes tube feeding so much easier and comfortable for chicken it seems. Tube looks small but I can use pretty thick Kay tee feeding powder with no trouble clogging. Here's pictures and an on-line link for same product. It holds up to 60cc pretty large.
